WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President-elect Mike Pence will lead President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team, replacing New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Trump picked his transition chairman and other leaders on Friday. It’s his biggest staffing announcement since he won the election this week.

Christie will now serve as vice chairman. He’s joined on the executive committee by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions.

A statement says more than a dozen other people will also advise Trump on transition matters. They include some of Trump’s children, Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus and former Breitbart news executive Steve Bannon.

  1. So we can leave comments here but no comments on the riots in Mpls and St Paul? Looks like Trump was right about the media, and WCCO is back to it’s same tricks.

    1. Craig Wilson says:

      really you need someone to explain that to you? You must be one of those “poorly educated” Trump followers he said he loved in Nevada Feb 2016. Trump hasn’t been right about anything yet.

    House Speaker Newt Gingrich, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani and Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions.Trump’s children, Republican Party Chairman Reince Priebus and former Breitbart news executive Steve Bannon.yes Trump is draining the swamp water all the while surrounding himself with career politicians, his gold spoon children from his trophy wives, CEO’s and other rich exec’s that don’t give a damn about the common man. Trump’s own web site has taken down his campaign promises already. He knows he can not keep them.
    “The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy.” Trump tweet. Trump has said for over 6 months the election is rigged. Voter fraud would be rampant. So now that he won what happened? Where is the loud mouth now?

    1. It’s ok snowflake. You can join the black high school kids in their protests to use any bathroom they want.
