President Obama's nominee to a top energy post is hanging on by a thread after a poor performance last week at a confirmation hearing where he failed to win over key supporters and even appeared to have misled a Senate committee about his record of support for a coal-fired energy plant.
Ms. Page, who overlapped Mr. Binz for a year on the Colorado commission, called him knowledgeable but said he was "very demanding and controlling."
"In that decision, it gave them all the legal necessities for building this coal plant and getting the rate recovery that would make them whole. That was done in 2005, and Mr. Binz joined the commission in 2007," she said.
