Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra is now the Ambassador to The Netherlands after receiving Senate confirmation late last week. 

WMP broke the story earlier this year that Hoekstra was the leading contender for the position, and President Trump ended up picking him.

Hoekstra, who was born in The Netherlands, was a co chair for President Trump's Michigan campaign in 2016.

Hoekstra's nomination was supported by both Sen. Gary Peters, and Sen. Debbie Stabenow. Hoekstra ran against Stabenow in 2012, ultimately falling short.
