President Donald Trump has nominated attorney and Tennessee native A.B. Culvahouse Jr. as ambassador to Australia, the Nashville Post reports. The former aide to Sen. Howard Baker also served as legal counsel to President Ronald Regan and was previously chair of international law firm O’Melveny & Myers. “A.B. Culvahouse is an exceptionally fine nominee for Ambassador to Australia,” Sen. Lamar Alexander said in a statement. “His experience as counsel to President Reagan and President Trump and former Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker, and his leadership of one of the world’s major law firms equip him to represent our country well."
