GOP Senator Gregg withdraws as commerce secretary nominee
Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) is no longer President Obama’s nominee for commerce secretary.
“We regret that he has had a change of heart,” said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, responding to Sen. Gregg’s announcement.
“The fault lies with me,” Gregg told Politico. “He refused to discuss any conversations he had with Obama, saying, ‘I may have embarrassed myself but hopefully not him.'”
