Former U.S. Sen. and Colorado Attorney General Ken Salazar
has been tapped by the Hillary Clinton
presidential campaign to chair her transition team, The Denver Post reported.
Salazar is former Secretary of the Department of the Interior.
From that story:
“Once Hillary Clinton makes history by being elected as the nation’s first woman President, we want to have a turnkey operation in place so she can hit the ground running right away,” Salazar said in a statement released Tuesday by the Clinton campaign.
Republican nominee Donald Trump has chosen New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to head his transition team.
In related news, The Post also reported
that Trump added to his campaign team in Colorado, which includes Dylan Sparks in El Paso County. Sparks reportedly just finished high school and is starting his first semester this fall at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. His Facebook page says he worked on campaigns for Colorado lawmakers Larry Liston and Lois Landgraf and also was part of John Suthers "campaign staff" when he ran and was elected Colorado Springs mayor.
