Bush Nominates Green to Ambassadorship

President Bush on Wednesday nominated former Rep. Mark Green (R) to be ambassador to Tanzania.

That should end speculation that Green, who gave up his Green Bay-area House seat for a gubernatorial run last year, will try to get his old job back in 2008.

Now-Rep. Steve Kagen (D), an allergist, narrowly defeated then-state Assembly Speaker John Gard (R) in the race to replace Green. Gard is contemplating a rematch, and former Green Bay Mayor Paul Jadin (R) also is seen as a possible challenger to the freshman Congressman.
