WASHINGTON (CBS4) – Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has tapped Coloradan Ken Salazar — the former Senator and more recently Interior Secretary — to lead her White House transition team, which will oversee planning for a potential Clinton administration should she win in November.
Salazar will chair a team that also includes former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, and longtime Clinton allies Neera Tanden and Maggie Williams.
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has tapped New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to lead his transition efforts.
By law, both nominees have access to offices in Washington and other resources to begin planning for their potential administrations.
