Manchin Votes To Confirm U.S. Trade Representative Tai

Tai was confirmed 98-0 with strong bipartisan support  

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), voted to confirm Katherine Tai as the United States Trade Representative.

“This evening I voted to confirm Katherine Tai as the U.S. Trade Representative. Throughout her career, Ms. Tai has excelled as a trade negotiator for the United States. Ms. Tai has proven that she is willing to examine trades deal from every angle to find the best options for the United States and West Virginia industries. During our conversation earlier this month, Ms. Tai committed to visiting West Virginia to see firsthand the impacts of trade deals on the Mountain State. I believe Ms. Tai will be an advocate for West Virginia businesses and industries, and I look forward to working with her to represent West Virginia interests in future trade deals.”
