Deadline NOW: Richard Cordray

On July 18, 2011, President Barack Obama announced his intention to nominate former Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray to be the Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). The Bureau is an independent agency with the primary mission of acting as a watchdog for American consumers.

In a statement made on July 17, 2011, the President said "Richard Cordray has spent his career advocating for middle class families, from his tenure as Ohio's Attorney General, to his most recent role as heading up the enforcement division at the CFPB and looking out for ordinary people in our financial system."

From WGTE's archives, here is then Attorney General Richard Cordray's appearance on Deadline Now, Friday, June 27, 2010.
