White House Taps Key Senate Aide for Treasury Rescue Mission

Posted June 27, 2017

As of June 27, 2017, the White House intends to nominate Chris Campbell, staff director for the Senate Finance Committee GOP, to serve as assistant Treasury secretary for financial institutions, people close to the matter said.
 
The job is among the most critical at Treasury as the department tries to push forward some of Trump's signature goals, including a major tax reform package and changes to Wall Street regulations. Treasury also faces the need to raise the nation's borrowing limit in the coming months to avoid a potentially catastrophic default.
