Gary Locke, Commerce secretary, to be nominated as ambassador to China
President Obama will nominate Commerce Secretary Gary Locke as the next U.S. ambassador to China, senior administration officials said late Monday, continuing a game of musical chairs that has shuffled top administration officials at the start of the second half of Obama's term.
A formal announcement is planned for Tuesday in the Diplomatic Reception Room.
