Kaine Statement on Nomination of Carlos Del Toro for Navy Secretary

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tim Kaine, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on President Biden’s nomination of Carlos Del Toro for Secretary of the Navy:

“I have known Carlos Del Toro for 20 years and cannot imagine a better pick to be Secretary of the Navy. His patriotic Navy service, including as a surface ship commanding officer, and his successful entrepreneurial career make him the right choice to take the helm of the Navy at such a critical time. I am particularly proud that he will continue a tradition of great Virginians serving in this important role.”
