HELENA | Sen. Max Baucus, Montana Democrat, says he plans to marry his girlfriend and former director of his state offices.
Mr. Baucus and his second wife, Wanda, divorced in early 2009 after 25 years of marriage.
By then, Miss Hanes had withdrawn her name from consideration and instead took a job with the Justice Department in Washington.
State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said the U.S. thinks it is important to have an ambassador in Caracas in order to manage relations, which have been strained by Mr. Chavez’s condemnations of the U.S. and by U.S. criticisms that democracy is deteriorating in Venezuela.
Mr. Crowley said Monday the administration regrets that Mr. Chavez refused to accept Larry Palmer as ambassador. It said that if a decision is made to seek Venezuela’s agreement on another envoy, that candidate’s nomination would have to be submitted to the Senate for confirmation. Mr. Crowley said this was now under consideration.
