Mulvaney at home with ‘geeks and wonks’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Now sworn in as the new director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Mick Mulvaney said he is happy that the confirmation process is over.
“I am absolutely ecstatic…the longest eight weeks of my life,” Mulvaney said during a phone interview Friday afternoon. “The wait was particularly tedious.”
Mulvaney quickly resigned the Fifth Congressional District seat on Thursday after he was confirmed by the Senate as OMB chief.
Leaving the U.S. House of Representatives, he said, was tough.
