WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton has tapped former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to lead her White House transition team.

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.

The team will oversee planning for a potential Clinton administration should the Democratic nominee win in November.

Republican 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.

    Nice to see a former governor still working for the people unlike guy before her that went to work for the world bank of bad loans.

    • NO PC FOR ME

      Well Chris you better bone up on your facts. After destroying Michigan’S economy Jenny went to work for UCLA and then for a short while took a job at one on the large liberal media outlets ( MSNBS or CNN) .
      So no. She was rewarded well for her efforts to get the est side of Michigan to vote for Obama. If you recall, she was the first governor to be seen publicly with the new president.
      Jenny went to work for Jenny and became a 1%er.
