Andrew Puzder says he is withdrawing as President Donald Trump's nominee for labor secretary.
Puzder says, "While I won't be serving in the administration, I fully support the president and his highly qualified team."
Puzder's confirmation hearing was scheduled for Thursday. But some Republicans had raised concerns about his failure to pay taxes for five years on a former housekeeper who wasn't authorized to work in the U.S.
Puzder is CEO of CKE Restaurants Inc.
