Clinton sets up transition team headed by Ken Salazar
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s transition team was announced Tuesday, to be headed by Ken Salazar, former secretary of the interior and senator from Colorado, with Neera Tanden and Maggie Williams, both confidants since she was first lady, chosen as co-chairs. Former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who also leads a pro-Clinton super PAC, will also serve as co-chairs.
The Republican candidate Donald Trump’s campaign named New Jersey Gov Chris Christie as chairman of his transition team in May. Transition teams bridge the gap between campaigns and the incoming president’s early days in the White House when decisions must be made and jobs need to be filled.
