Daschle withdraws from nomination for HHS Secretary

Former Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) withdrew Tuesday from consideration as Department of Health and Human Services Secretary, according to a White House statement. The withdrawal follows a Senate Finance Committee vetting review that revealed Daschle had tax violations. Daschle, viewed as an advocate for healthcare information technology, was a highly favored candidate across party lines and also had been tapped to be the White House healthcare czar.
