Biden Nominates Cindy McCain To UN Food And Agriculture Post

Ross D. Franklin | Associated Press

President Joe Biden is nominating Cindy McCain to be the U.S. representative to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture. It's one of 17 nominations announced Wednesday that included major diplomatic and arts assignments. McCain is the widow of Arizona Sen. John McCain. She broke with Republicans and endorsed Biden for president. This made her a key surrogate for the Democrat after years of attacks by Donald Trump on her husband. Biden is also nominating Massachusetts state Rep. Claire Cronin to be ambassador to Ireland.
