Roemer tapped as envoy to India

President Barack Obama nominated former U.S. Rep. Tim Roemer as ambassador to India, the White House said late Wednesday.

The 52-year-old Democrat represented South Bend and the surrounding region in the U.S. House from 1991 to 2003.

He also was a member of the 9/11 Commission, which studied the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, an original sponsor of legislation to form the federal Department of Homeland Security and a vocal campaigner for Obama’s presidential bid.

He holds both a master’s and doctoral degree from the University of Notre Dame.

Since leaving Congress, Roemer has been president of the Center for National Policy, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank that analyzes foreign policy and global security. He also served on a bipartisan commission formed by Congress to study threats from weapons of mass destruction.His nomination — announced with 11 other nominations Wednesday night — has been a badly kept secret for weeks. Numerous news outlets have reported it as a sure thing, although the White House and Roemer both kept mum.
