A look at how Biden’s Cabinet nominees fared Tuesday

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden’s Cabinet is starting to fill out, with nominees for agriculture secretary and United Nations ambassador gaining Senate approval Tuesday. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that he intends to wrap up the remaining nomination votes quickly. Schumer says, “At a time of acute national challenge, we need qualified leaders atop our federal agencies — and fast.” But one of Biden’s nominees, Neera Tanden, is clearly in trouble in her quest to lead the White House Office of Management and Budget. Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia has said he opposes her confirmation.
