Trump to pick Cathy McMorris Rodgers for Department of Interior? Update: Nope, staying in congress...

Wall Street Journal: McMorris Rodgers to Interior?

Rush Limbaugh is musing this may be the Reince Preibus's GOPe pick, signaling that Mitt might be out at State. Of course the media are wringing their hands that Trump will roll back all the environmental gains (actually restrictions) imposed by the Obama administration on federal lands.  

I hope that is the case. More oil and gas exploration and development are good things.

  1. And, if Trump wanted to hand the Rs 2 more Senate seats:

    The Tuesday meeting at the National Republican Senatorial Committee offices comes as President-elect Trump is considering Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.) for a Cabinet position, possibly at the Energy Department or the Agriculture Department.

    West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, another Democrat, is also a potential candidate for a Cabinet position in the Trump administration. He's seen as a contender for energy secretary. Manchin is slated to meet with Trump on Monday.

    If he does, both state have R governors. Think about it.
