May 05, 2001|From a Times staff writer

WASHINGTON — The White House said Friday that President Bush will nominate Matt Fong, a Republican who was trounced in 1998 when he ran for the Senate against Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), to be Army undersecretary.

Fong spent five years in the Air Force after graduating from the U.S. Air Force Academy and has been an officer in the Air Force Reserve since 1980.

Fong is the son of former California Secretary of State March Fong Eu, a Democrat.

Fong held several positions in the Bush campaign last year, among them co-chairman of the California campaign organization.
