KS Senator Voices Support for VA Nominee

VA logo

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Senator Jerry Moran plans to support former corporate executive Robert McDonald's nomination as secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The Kansas Republican announced his backing for McDonald after meeting with him Wednesday in the senator's Washington office. Moran is a member of the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee. McDonald is a former Army Ranger who was forced out as CEO of consumer products giant Proctor & Gamble last year. Democratic President Barack Obama nominated him to head the Department of Veterans Affairs after revelations of widespread treatment delays and falsified records to cover up months-long waits for appointments. Moran says he was impressed with McDonald's candor and commitment to veterans. The senator says he believes McDonald is ready to take on challenges that include dismantling the VA's bureaucracy.
