MORE: Trump, in meeting with lawmakers, says will announce new Secretary of Labor pick at noon news conference.— CNBC (@CNBC) February 16, 2017
UPDATE 11:03 a.m.: Trump will announce his new Labor Secretary at noon Thursday, CNBC reports.
Now that Andrew Puzder has withdrawn his nomination to become secretary of Labor, President Trump will have to work fast to find a replacement.
Trump hasn't said who he will chose to fill Puzder's vacancy, but it's likely that he will chose from a shortlist of candidates that were already considered for the position.
Here's a few likely choices:
He was a member of the National Labor Relations Board from 2006 to 2008.
Kirsanow met with Trump in November to discuss labor and immigration issues.
In 2016, Kirsanow testified in front of a Senate committee and claimed that illegal immigration was the biggest threat to American labor.
Kirsanow also testified on behalf of Jeff Sessions when the Senate was debating his nomination for attorney general.
R. Alexander Acosta
He's a prominent lawyer and the Dean of the Florida International University College of Law.
Acosta served as the assistant attorney general for the Civil Rights Division under President George W. Bush.
If chosen, Acosta would be the first Hispanic nominee for Trump's cabinet.
But Trump may also be considering another Hispanic candidate for the nomination.
Guzman teaches labor relations at Michigan State University. He was a member of the Trump campaign's National Hispanic Advisory Council.
The former South Carolina labor secretary is also up for consideration, according to multiple news reports.
Templeton, who is also an attorney, led the state's Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulations under Gov. Nikki Haley. She went on to become the director at the state Department of Health and Environmental Control.
Templeton is also a 2018 gubernatorial candidate. If she is chosen to be labor secretary it would eliminate the competition for the current Gov. Henry McMaster, who replaced Nikki Haley just three weeks ago after she was confirmed as Trump's U.N. ambassador.
The Wisconsin governor was already rumored to be on Trump's shortlist before Puzder was ultimately nominated.
Walker, who also ran for president in 2016, has a close relationship with the White House and is known for aggressively fighting labor unions.
In 2011, he pushed through a law that ended unions' collective bargaining rights.
However, Walker on Wednesday was quick to say that he was not interested in taking the job. Walker campaign spokesman Joe Fadness told the Associated Press "there has been no offer and Governor Walker has no interest in a Cabinet position."
The future is too bright in WI for me to do anything other than being Governor. 😎— Scott Walker (@ScottWalker) February 15, 2017
Walker tweeted that he was happy being governor.
Lipnic was thought to be a frontrunner for the nomination back in November. She's one of two Republican commissioners on the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which enforces civil rights laws in the workplace.
She's seen as a more moderate choice for the job. Her voting record for the EEOC has crossed party lines.
Lipnic is largely in favor of scaling back regulations, which is a priority for Trump.
Trump met Wednesday night with Acosta and Guzman and is expected to meet with Templeton while he is in South Carolina on Friday, a White House official told Bloomberg.
