Marco Rubio Puts a Hold on Seven Biden Nominees, Including Eric Garcetti

Ahead of a U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations business meeting, at the end of last week, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., placed a hold on seven Biden administration nominations.

The most prominent name on the list of holds is former LA Mayor Eric Garcetti who President Joe Biden nominated to serve as ambassador to India.

“The Biden Administration has nominated questionable individuals to multiple posts as representatives of the U.S. government,” Rubio’s office insisted, offering the following information:

Eric Garcetti, nominated to serve as U.S. Ambassador to India, whose nomination Rubio has previously voted against,

Richard Verma, nominated to serve as Deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources.

Michael Ratney, nominated to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, whose nomination Rubio has previously voted against.

Felice Gorodo, nominated to serve as United States Alternate Executive Director of the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, whose nomination Rubio has previously voted against.

Richard Weiner, nominated to serve as United States Director of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, whose nomination Rubio has previously voted against.

Leopoldo Martínez Nucete, nominated to serve as United States Executive Director of the Inter-American Development Bank, whose nomination Rubio has previously voted against. And,

Geeta Rao Gupta, nominated to serve as Ambassador at Large for Global Women’s Issues, whose nomination Rubio has previously voted against.

“One of these nominees has ignored credible sexual assault accusations in his prior office. Another has done legal work with solar panel companies in Xinjiang, where egregious human rights abuses are committed. The list also contains an abortion extremist, someone with no diplomatic or investment experience, and an individual who has suported a policy of engagement with Cuba’s murderous dictatorship. I will not turn a blind eye to these absurd nominations, which will hasten America’s decline,” said Rubio.
