President Barack Obama has nominated three major funders of his 2012 re-election
campaign to top diplomatic posts.
All three nominations came Thursday, The Hill reported.
Obama nominated Dwight Bush, who donated more than $500,000 for the president's re-election, to be the U.S. ambassador to Morocco.
Pamela Hamamoto, who raised more than $500,000 for Obama's 2012 campaign and went to school with the president in Hawaii, was nominated as the representative to the United Nations in Geneva.
And Obama nominated Noah Mamet as the next ambassador to Argentina. Mamet has donated nearly $1.75 million to the president's campaigns since 2007.
Since being re-election, Obama has nominated at least 20 of his political allies to ambassador posts.
