President Obama appointed Don Beyer, a former Democratic lieutenant governor and a Northern Virginia car dealer, ambassador to Switzerland and the principality of Liechtenstein.
Beyer was an early supporter of Obama in Virginia and served Obama's mid-Atlantic finance chairman during last year's campaign. He and his wife, Megan, raised more than $1.5 million for Obama.
Obama was the first Democratic presidential candidate to carry the state in more than four decades.
