White House nominates Nelson for NASA administrator
Posted: Fri, Mar 26, 2021, 5:50 PM ET (2150 GMT)
The White House's nomination of former senator Bill Nelson to be NASA administrator has won widespread support. The White House announced March 19 it was nominating Nelson to lead the agency, confirming rumors in recent days that the former senator for Florida would be tapped to run NASA. The White House described Nelson as the "go-to senator for our nation's space program" during his three terms in the Senate. That nomination has the backing of current members of Congress, including the chair of the Senate Commerce Committee, Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), which will hold a confirmation hearing for Nelson in the coming weeks. Former NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine also endorsed Nelson's nomination, as did industry groups such as the Aerospace Industries Association and Commercial Spaceflight Federation.
