Bush Nominates Green to Ambassadorship

Posted June 7, 2007 at 2:30pm

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.
