Trump to Tap PA Rep. Tom Marino as Drug Czar

President Trump will nominate Rep. Tom Marino of Pennsylvania to head the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the White House announced late Friday. Marino, one of the first lawmakers to back Trump’s bid for president, had previously withdrawn from consideration for the role due to a “critical illness” in his family. Marino is a former county prosecutor who was appointed by former President George Bush to serve as U.S. attorney in Pennsylvania's Middle District.
