WASHINGTON/BOSTON April 12 Bharat R. Ramamurti,
a legislative aide for Democratic Massachusetts Senator
Elizabeth Warren, is a contender for one of the vacant
commissioner jobs at the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission, according to people familiar with the matter.
Ramamurti currently serves as senior counsel to Warren on
banking and economic policy, and Warren is staunchly backing him
for the SEC job, one of the sources told Reuters.
The sources spoke anonymously because the deliberations over
SEC candidates are non-public.
