Joe Manchin Opposes Biden’s Controversial Federal Reserve Nominee Sarah Raskin

Sen. Joe Manchin on Monday said he opposes President Biden’s nomination of Sarah Raskin to serve on the seven-member Federal Reserve board — likely blocking her nomination. Manchin’s surprise announcement handed the White House a significant defeat after it invested time defending Raskin’s contentious candidacy. It follows Manchin (D-WV) blowing up Biden’s $2 trillion Build Back Better Act in December.
