President Obama will nominate Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-Mont.) for ambassador to China, lobbyists and a leading GOP senator said Wednesday.
Sen. Orrin Hatch (Utah), the top Republican on the Finance Committee, said he understood that tapping Baucus for the key diplomatic post was a “done deal.”
Hatch did not delve into specifics on how or when he learned of the plan, but cited a “good authority.”
“I understand it’s a done deal. I’m going to miss him.”
Baucus, a key architect of President Obama’s signature healthcare law and a champion of tax reform, told reporters on Wednesday that he wouldn’t comment, but did not deny that he would be chosen for the ambassadorship.
