Transcript for Top Secretary of State Contenders
Let's talk about it with Jon Karl and, Jon, extraordinary public jockeying for secretary of state job. The two main contenders it appears, Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani. It seems like trump is intrigued by Romney but his staff not so much. He's facing open revolt by members of his staff like kellyanne Conway, really do not like the idea and made it clear. But the controversy between those two, between Giuliani and Romney has opened up the possibility of a third Kate and that's why you saw David Petraeus at trump tower yesterday. Bob corker, the senator from Tennessee, foreign relations committee will be there today. I'm told general Allen is also in the mix. If he goes that direction and chooses a general for secretary of state you have the prospect of three generals on his national security team, Mattis, a leading contender for defense, Flynn at national security council and possibly Petraeus. If he picked those they would need a waiver from congress. Meantime, you do have this pick this morning, congressman Tom price, orthopedic surgeon member of congress to head health and human services. It shows the real influence of Mike pence. Pence and price were very close in congress. Both served in the house together and this is clearly showing the influence of pence. Price is somebody by the way who was both a prominent critic of Obamacare but actually wrote a plan to replace Obamacare, no the simply one of those that said repeal. Was also replace. A strong supporter of Donald Trump going back to may. Absolutely. Jon Karl, thanks very much.
