The US Senate confirmed on Saturday the appointment of veteran diplomat Denise Campbell Bauer as US Ambassador to France.

President Joe Biden had appointed her in July but it was finally in the early hours of the weekend that a majority emerged in the upper house of Congress to confirm to this post the diplomat and defender of the place of women in politics.

When announcing his appointment, the White House underlined his “skills in crisis management” and her “reputation as a leader in cooperation”.

Aged 57, Ms. Campbell Bauer headed the US Embassy in Brussels between 2013 and 2017. She had previously been a member of the Democratic Party leadership, participating in Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns.

Returning to the United States after the victory of Republican Donald Trump, she re-engaged in politics in 2019 by participating in Joe Biden’s presidential campaign. She notably supported women embarking on their first political campaign.
