Obama: Gregg Withdrawal “Something of a Surprise”

Feb 12, 2009 6:12pm

In a telephone interview with the Springfield, Illinois State Journal-Register said the news of Sen. Judd Gregg’s withdrawal as a nominee for Commerce Secretary "comes as something of a surprise, because the truth, you know, Mr. Gregg approached us with interest and seemed enthusiastic.’

"But ultimately, I think, we’re going to just keep on making efforts to build the kind of bipartisan concensus around important issues that I think the American people are looking for," the president said.
