Two Democratic Senators Oppose Biden Cabinet Nominee Over Twitter Habits

Senate Budget Committee Examines OMB Director Nominee Neera Tanden

President Biden's latest Cabinet nominee is getting some pushback from members of his own party.

Two Democratic Senators, Joe Manchin and Susan Collins, have said they will not support Neera Tanden, Biden's pick for director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Tanden has come under fire for her Twitter habits - she's been known for tweeting incessantly in recent years, including harsh criticisms of Democratic figures like Manchin, Collins, and Bernie Sanders, among others. 

With Manchin and Collins voting 'no', Democrats will need support from at least one Republican Senator in order to confirm Tanden.
