President-elect Joe Biden has selected Ohio Representative Marcia Fudge to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Fudge, who has served in the House since 2008, represents most of the majority-Black areas of Cleveland as well as part of Akron. If nominated, she would be one of just a few House members to leave for the Biden administration as Democrats fight to hold on to the small majority they still have in the next Congress.
