LABORA Labor official says Rep. Hilda Solis of California will be nominated as Labor secretary. The Democratic congresswoman was just elected to her fifth term representing heavily Latino portions of eastern Los Angeles County and east L.A. She is the daughter of Mexican and Nicaraguan immigrants and has been the only member of Congress of Central American descent. During the confirmation process, Solis was questioned about her support for organized labor, which raised some questions for Republicans but not enough to hurt her chances in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
