President-elect Donald Trump announced Saturday the nomination of South Carolina Rep. Mick Mulvaney, an opponent of government spending who rode the 2010 tea party wave to Congress, for director of the Office of Management and Budget.
The three-term Republican congressman, a founding member of the hard-line conservative House Freedom Caucus, met with Trump in New York earlier this month. He first tipped his hand publicly in a Facebook post on Oct. 19, when a follower asked Mulvaney his preferred position in a potential Trump administration.
