The National Aeronautics and Space Administration job, which is based in Washington, D.C., requires Senate confirmation and involves overseeing an estimated $20 billion budget as well as the agency’s financial operations.

By joining President Donald Trump’s administration, DeWit, who was chief operating officer of Trump’s presidential campaign, ends speculation about his political future, including a potential run for Arizona’s open Senate seat.

The 44-year-old Peoria resident said accepting the nomination wasn’t an easy decision.
