Trump Aides Say Search for Secretary of State is Down to 4 Candidates


Donald Trump’s very public search for a secretary of State will go on a bit longer.

While announcing Wednesday that the president-elect has narrowed his search to four candidates, Trump aides also said they do not expect any more announcements on any Cabinet slots the rest of this week.

“There is not a set timetable” for filling the secretary of State position, Trump transition spokesman Jason Miller said.

Miller and other aides would not identify the four finalists, but confirmed that they include 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney and ex-New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, a prominent Trump surrogate during the campaign.

Trump has interviewed at least two other candidates: Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and retired general and ex-CIA director David Petraeus.
