Zinke re­port­edly of­fered spot as In­te­rior sec­re­tary

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS - — Vic­tor Mor­ton

Rep. Ryan K. Zinke, Mon­tana Repub­li­can, is Don­ald Trump’s choice to be In­te­rior sec­re­tary, ac­cord­ing to “two tran­si­tion of­fi­cials” and one other source cited by Politico.

How­ever, Politico re­ported, there was no in­di­ca­tion that Mr. Zinke, a for­mer Navy SEAL com­man­der, was in­clined to ac­cept the of­fer from Mr. Trump.

Mr. Zinke was an early sup­porter of the po­lit­i­cal new­comer’s can­di­dacy, but is also be­ing eyed by D.C. Repub­li­cans as a po­ten­tial chal­lenger for Mon­tana’s U.S. Se­nate seat, which Demo­crat Jon Tester will de­fend in 2018.
