Neera Tanden, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) nominee and president of the progressive think-tank Center for American Progress (CAP), will need the votes of Republican Senators she’s publicly disparaged in the past to assume her post if Republicans have a Senate majority.
After former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lost to President Donald Trump, Tanden circulated conspiracy theories that Russians had actually switched votes from Clinton to Trump, according to the New York Post. She has also launched personal attacks on and criticisms of Senate Republicans on social media — especially during the Trump presidency. Now she is likely to need their vote.
