President Trump has re-nominated Kansas Republican Gov. Sam Brownback for a post in the U.S. State Department.
The president’s re-nomination of Brownback to serve as ambassador for international religious freedom won’t trigger any immediate action.
Brownback says he will remain governor until the U.S. Senate votes to confirm him.
First nominated in July, Brownback expected to start his new job before the end of last year. He recently began handing over responsibilities to his successor, Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer.
