Jim Jordan to Take on Education Secretary Biden

Jim Jordan will take on education secretary Joe Biden as the former president considers the appointment, the White House announced on Monday.

“In a matter of days, President Biden has made a decision that will shape the future of our country and the future for millions of Americans,” Biden said in a statement.

“Jim is a smart, hardworking, and experienced executive who understands the importance of education to our economy and the middle class.

We thank Jim for his service and look forward to working together to build a better tomorrow.”

In the statement, the president noted that the appointment of a new secretary of education would create an opportunity for a new president to appoint a secretary of labor or a new ambassador to China.

Biden had previously been the top candidate for the job, but was not interested in taking the job.
