When Sen. Judd Gregg announced he was withdrawing his name for nomination as Commerce Secretary, he said that the census was only a minor reason for the withdrawal. Gregg said that the census was such a “slight” issue that it wasn’t even worth discussing.
Fox’s Washington editor Bill Sammon continued to blame the census for Gregg’s withdrawal this morning. “It was all about the census. Do not believe the spin that this is about the stimulus,” said Sammon. “The White House is spinning it because it’s more useful to say we got a flip-flopping Republican.”
