President Trump has withdrawn the nomination of Tony Kurta, a Pentagon official who was tapped to be promoted to the head of military personnel and readiness, according to the Senate.

Senators were notified late last week about the decision after Kurta’s nomination, first filed in July of 2017, languished in the chamber for nearly a year.

Kurta, a former Navy officer, was named deputy assistant secretary for military personnel policy in 2014 and was in line to become a principal deputy undersecretary of defense who would report to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and his deputy.

In November, Kurta testified on his nomination before the Senate Armed Services Committee. The committee reported Kurta favorably to the full Senate days later but the nomination never made it to the Senate floor for a vote.

Kurta was among two Trump nominees who have languished in the Senate for more than a year.

Charles “Cully” Stimson, who has been picked to be the Navy’s general counsel, was nominated in June 2017 and was approved by the Armed Services committee about a month later.

Stimson has yet to receive a floor vote even as other Pentagon nominees are approved.
