Politico reports that President Joe Biden named four ambassador nominees on Wednesday, including Cindy McCain, the wife of the late Republican Sen. John McCain, as US representative to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture.
McCain’s nomination is a bipartisan move on Biden’s part, as she is a prominent Republican businesswoman in Arizona. Biden was friends with her husband, who represented the state, and Cindy McCain endorsed Biden during his run for president in 2020. The McCains’ daughter Meghan McCain is a conservative TV personality.
