NEW YORK (AP) — Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin says she “discussed a wide range of issues” with President-elect Donald Trump but that she has not yet been offered a post in his administration.
Fallin, a Republican, is being considered to head the Interior Department, according to Trump aide Kellyanne Conway. Fallin met with Trump at Trump Tower on Monday and said they had a “wonderful discussion.”
Her meeting with Trump came after he sat down with former U.S. Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts. Brown indicated he is under consideration to become Veterans Affairs secretary.
Brown, a Republican and member of the Army National Guard, told reporters he believes he is “the best person” for the job. He said his priorities would be to combat veterans’ mental health issues in hopes of preventing suicides.
