Press Release

WASHINGTON—Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) issued this statement in response to Sen. Judd Gregg’s withdrawal as President Obama’s nominee as Commerce Secretary:

"President Obama must be commended for continuing to try to reach across party lines. Regretfully, his choice as Commerce Secretary didn't work out. I'm certain that President Obama will name another Commerce nominee and a Census Director shortly, and that planning and preparation will proceed on a full and fair count that must begin in just 11 months.”
