Outgoing U.S. Sen. Tom Udall of New Mexico tops a list for secretary of the Interior Department for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, according to a national news outlet.
Also being considered is Democratic U.S. Rep. Deb Haaland of New Mexico and U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, an Arizona Democrat and leader of the House committee on natural resources, according to Bloomberg News.
The Interior Department oversees concerns crucial to the West and the nation, including grazing, parks and recreation, and oil and gas extraction on federal land. The agency also oversees coastal drilling, among other environmental concerns.
A spokesman for Udall did not rule out the possibility the longtime senator is being considered for the Cabinet position, which would give the Democrat significant authority over issues of key importance to New Mexico, other states and to environmentalists.
"Right now, Senator Udall is focused on a strong finish to his Senate term, and hes also working hard to help the Biden-Harris ticket win New Mexico, win the West, and win the election," spokesman Ned Adriance said in an email. "Westerners and Americans all across the country are tired of President Trumps attacks on our public lands, outdoor economy, and way of life."

Udall has long been praised by Democrats and environmental groups for championing conservation causes. He has led the charge against a controversial plan to allow oil drilling in the area surrounding the Chaco Culture National Historical Park, which contains sites considered sacred by some Native Americans.
Those Udall are like a rash you can never get rid of
They are an old time Bolshevik family.
I wouldnt measure for drapes just yet.
This a$$holes father was Morris Udall. The guy hung around government like a raccoon in a garbage dumpster.
Joe’s certainly counting his chickens. Because those chickens won’t count themselves.
They are all like rashes you cant get rid of and I am sick of them all.
They really think they’ll win?
How come we know his pick for Secretary of Interior, but we can’t know his list for SCOTUS?
An exercise in futility!
yeah did i miss something?
Should we still vote?
He should have a fireworks display off the NY harbor to celebrate like hillary did...
Good start on filling his Cabinet with 15 flunkees.
Joe doesn't know that Tom is a different guy; Stewart's son, and figures: Heck Ol' Udall has experience in the job, I'll put him back in!"

Color me confused. Since when does the loser have a cabinet?
Rep. Raúl Grijalva, an Arizona Democrat - leader of the congressional Progressive caucus (communists) and alcoholic. Really - he was accused of sexuall harrasment, his official defense was that he was just drunk. Always drunk. I would guess there are at least 100 million people in US more qualified than him.
Raul Grijalva is, or at least was, the chairman of the Democrat Socialists in Congress. He is a flaming Marxist. He is a man of limited intelligence who is constantly reelected by people of limited intelligence in southern Arizona.
This reminds me of all the “Hillary’s cabinet” articles in 2016.
For a Biden what??
