WASHINGTON – President Joe Biden’s nominee for ambassador to India, Eric Garcetti, should receive a full and expeditious vote in the U.S. Senate, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield said on Wednesday.

Biden has confidence in him and believes he will make an “excellent representative in India,” she said, responding to a question about recent media reports that have highlighted concerns among some Democratic lawmakers over Garcetti’s nomination.
