Biden picks Air Force's vice chief as its next top officer
But Gen. Dave Allvin may be ensnared by Sen. Tuberville's blanket hold on senior promotions.
President Biden has tapped the Air Force’s No. 2 officer, Gen. David Allvin, to be the service’s next chief of staff.
Allvin, who is currently serving as the service’s vice chief of staff, would replace Gen. CQ Brown, who is Biden’s pick to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
The nomination was sent to the Senate on Tuesday, according to a notice, but has not been publicly announced.
