Live Updates: Biden introduces Yellen, other economic team picks

Biden named former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen as his pick for Treasury secretary

President-elect Joe Biden is introducing members of his economic team in an event Tuesday afternoon.

Biden named former Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen as his pick for Treasury secretary, and Democratic operative Neera Tanden for director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Biden is pressing forward with the transition after President Trump suffered more setbacks in his push to overturn his defeat in the presidential election, as Arizona and Wisconsin on Monday certified Biden's victories in those states.

The results of the election were certified by Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, who's a Democrat, with GOP Gov. Doug Ducey, Republican state Attorney General Mark Brnovich, and state Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel in attendance.

Wisconsin was the last of the remaining contested battleground states to certify.
