The White House announced Wednesday that President Barack Obama was nominating Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) former chief of staff, Susan McCue, and former Bush White House Press Secretary Dana Perino to the Broadcasting Board of Governors.This is the second time a president has nominated McCue to the Broadcasting Board of Governors. President George W. Bush also nominated her, but Senate Republicans refused to move her nomination to the Senate floor despite repeated attempts by Reid.Since leaving the White House, Perino, a frequent commentator on Fox News, has worked as the chief issues counselor for the United States at Burson-Marsteller.
