President Biden could be considering L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti for a posting as U.S. Ambassador to India, Axios reports.
Citing unnamed “people familiar with the matter,” the news report says Garcetti is “one of several candidates under consideration” at this time. A spokesperson for the mayor declined to comment on the rumor.
Garcetti has been a close ally of the president since early on in Biden’s run for the office, and has been previously rumored to be a candidate for several high-profile postings in the administration, none of which materialized.
But it’s possible things will be different this time around. Just as the pandemic crisis appears to be coming under control in Los Angeles, it is exploding in India, and there could be hope that an Ambassador Garcetti could provide insight and support when it comes to effectively delivering aid.
No matter what, Garcetti’s days as mayor are waning. Due to term limits on the office, he is not eligible to run for reelection again in 2022.
