Norway has been without an American ambassador for more than 850 days. It is time for Ted Cruz and his fellow Senate Republicans to allow crucial nominations to pass.
More than two years have passed since the American ambassador to Norway, Barry White, completed his tour and left the country. An uncontroversial candidate stands ready to assume the post, but Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has blocked the nomination.
As a Norwegian, a friend of United States, and a former employee of the American Embassy in Oslo, I am deeply concerned about the situation. Norwegians expect more from our most important ally, and we are right to do so.
