(AP) The White House says President Barack Obama is nominating Vicki Kennedy to the board of governors for the U.S. Postal Service.


Kennedy is the widow of former Sen. Ted Kennedy, who died in 2009. The Massachusetts Democrat was a prominent supporter of Obama's first presidential campaign.


Vicki Kennedy is a lawyer and co-founded the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate. She's also on the board of trustees for the Kennedy Center.


Kennedy's nomination must be confirmed by the Senate. The board of governors chooses the postmaster general and controls the postal service's spending, planning and policies.
