The last few days have been filled with trial balloons and other leaks of well known names, as reporters and politicians try to figure out who might get tapped by President-Elect Donald Trump for the top jobs in his administration.
“I am the only one who knows who the finalists are,” Mr. Trump tweeted.
Very organized process taking place as I decide on Cabinet and many other positions. I am the only one who knows who the finalists are!
There are also a number of lower profile Cabinet spots that need to be filled, and several members of Congress may be in the mix for those slots as well.
One report Tuesday said Rep. Tom Price (R-GA) was getting a look at being Health and Human Services Secretary.
When asked about that last week by my colleague Tamar Hallerman, Price laughed at the idea. But on Tuesday evening, he brushed by reporters in the Speaker’s Lobby, as we tried to ask him about the job.
the HHS Sec rumor mill of the day- — Ben Carson out. Tom Price MIGHT be in. For the moment. #Transition2017
