President Biden is preparing to nominate Cindy McCain, the wife of late-Republican Sen. John McCain, to an ambassadorship in Western Europe, according to a news report Monday.
McCain is being vetted for the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. World Food Programme, based in Rome, Italy, two sources told Politico.
Her appointment would mark the first Biden administration Republican appointee to Senate-confirmed position.
McCain has previously worked with the U.N. wood program. She traveled to the country of Georgia with the organization in 2008 after the Russian invasion of the country to give aid and food to wounded soldiers. She also monitored the program in Southeast Asia and Africa,
She is also the chair of the McCain institute board of trustees and has worked to curb world hunger and human trafficking.
During the 2020 presidential election, McCain's support for Biden helped him win in Red state Arizona, which her husband represented in Congress.
Biden plans to announce most of its nominations for ambassadors at the same time, how the exact time is unclear.
