If Donald Trump wins the presidency on Tuesday, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani and Reince Priebus could be named to his cabinet, anonymous sources told NBC News.
Among the positions named by an anonymous Trump campaign adviser:
- Rudy Giuliani for attorney general
- Newt Gingrich for secretary of state
- Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn for defense secretary or national security adviser
- Reince Priebus, current RNC chairman, for chief of staff
What about Christie?
All of those people have played major roles in the Trump campaign.
Chris Christie, who was long considered to be a likely pick for a cabinet spot, has drifted from the campaign as the Bridgegate scandal has heated up again. Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama has taken a lead role in managing the transition effort in Christie's stead, NBC News reports.
'We need to find that balance between someone who knows how Washington works and someone who shakes things up.
However, it's not clear if all of the likely names are interested in the jobs. Priebus, in particular, may not want the position. Other names considered for top positions include Steve Mnuchin, current Trump finance chairman, for Treasury secretary, and RNC finance chair Lew Eisenberg for commerce secretary.
