President Joe Biden still wants former Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to serve as his ambassador to India.

He renominated Garcetti as the new congressional session began Jan. 3. Garcetti was originally nominated several months after Biden took office, but he never received a vote of the full Senate. He’s faced accusations of turning a blind eye to misconduct by a top aide in his mayor’s office. Garcetti has repeatedly denied being aware of any inappropriate behavior.

“We see this as a very important nomination,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Tuesday. “We’re hopeful that the full Senate will confirm him promptly.”

All told, the White House on Tuesday resubmitted 85 nominations out of roughly 175 that fell short in the last congressional session.  More renominations are expected in the coming weeks.
