(CNN)–Senate Republicans are holding up President Joe Biden’s nominee (Kiran Ahuja above) to lead the Office of Personnel Management over concerns about her stance on critical race theory.

GOP Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri has placed a hold on Kiran Ahuja’s nomination to lead the federal personnel agency “because of her history promoting radical critical race theorists,” Hawley spokesperson Kelli Ford said.

“These associations merit real scrutiny, especially in light of Ms. Ahuja’s nomination to a role that would allow her to reinstate race-based training sessions throughout the entire federal government,” Ford said in a statement.

The hold on Ahuja’s nomination is just the latest flashpoint in a broader conservative effort to push back on critical race theory, which recognizes that systemic racism is part of American society and challenges the beliefs that allow it to flourish.
