Andrew Puzder Withdraws a Secretary of Labor Nominee
Andrew Puzder has withdrawn from consideration as Secretary of Labor. As we previously reported, Puzder’s confirmation hearing, scheduled for tomorrow, had been postponed multiple times amid increasing scrutiny surrounding his corporate and personal business dealings. His withdrawal came today amid reports that support among Republican Senators was faltering.
A replacement nominee has not yet been named but we will provide an update as soon as one is available. Stay tuned.
