Deb Haaland

U.S. Rep. Pete Stauber is leading an effort to urge President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team to withdraw a historic Cabinet selection, with mere days left until the inauguration and full-edged nomination hearings [when this article was posted online].

Stauber, a Republican who represents the Eighth District in northeastern Minnesota, circulated a draft letter to fellow House members asking them to join in opposing the nomination of Democratic U.S. Rep. Deb Haaland of New Mexico. Haaland, who Biden nominated for Interior secretary, was a historic choice as, if approved, she would be the first Native American to serve as a Cabinet secretary.
