Utah’s Huntsman added to list of secretary of state candidates
Kellyanne Conway said Sunday that President-elect Donald Trump has expanded his secretary of state search beyond the four finalists announced last week.
Ms. Conway, who was Mr. Trump’s campaign manager, told reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower on Sunday that Mr. Trump would have “additional interviews” this week, but she did not identify the new candidates.
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is one candidate who might be considered, according to someone close to the transition process who was not permitted to speak publicly about the process. The previously identified finalists are Mitt Romney, former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, former CIA Director David Petraeus and Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker.
