BREAKING: Pete Buttigieg Top Contender For Transportation Secretary

Pete Buttigieg is emerging as a leading contender to be Joe Biden’s Transportation secretary, multiple sources familiar with the transition’s deliberations tell CNN.

The possible nomination would vault the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate into the federal government, getting the former South Bend, Indiana, mayor what many Democrats see as needed experience should he want to run for president again.
Buttigieg would also be the first LGBTQ candidate nominated to Biden’s administration and, should he be confirmed, the first LGBTQ Cabinet secretary to be approved by the Senate.
