In December 2008, he was nominated for the United States Cabinet/cabinet-level position of United States Secretary of Commerce/Commerce Secretary in the first Barack Obama/Obama administration but withdrew a month later as he was investigated for possibly improper business dealings in New Mexico. Although the investigation was later dropped, it was seen to have damaged Richardson's career, as his second and final term as New Mexico governor concluded.
