Neera Tanden withdraws name from nominaationNeera Tanden, President Joe Biden's controversial pick to lead the Office of Management and Budget, withdrew herself from consideration Tuesday after her confirmation collapsed last week, dealing Biden his first major blow in his nominations to the Cabinet.

Biden in a statement said Tanden had withdrawn her nomination and said he still "look(ed) forward to having her serve in a role in my Administration," signaling that he could still appoint her to a position that does not require Senate confirmation.

Tanden led the left-leaning think tank Center for American Progress for a decade, during which she gained a reputation as a partisan warrior who frequently targeted Republican lawmakers on Twitter and feuded with progressives including Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. The seasoned Democratic operative gained an outpouring of support for her nomination from outside groups, including the conservative U.S. Chamber of Commerce and labor groups, but her trail of abrasive tweets targeted at members of both parties may have torpedoed her confirmation.
