U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says President Barack Obama's nominee for Secretary of Commerce is an excellent choice to head the federal agency.
Durbin announced Tuesday his support for Penny Pritzker after meeting with her to discuss her nomination.
Pritzker is a Chicago business executive and sits on the board of Hyatt Hotels Corp. The hotel empire was founded by her family.
Durbin is a Democrat from Illinois. He says Pritzker has risen to the highest ranks of corporate America and is aware of the challenges that businesses face.
Durbin says she has years of experience in economic growth and job creation.
Obama nominated Pritzker earlier this month. The U.S. Senate must confirm her nomination.
