Granholm tapped to be part of Clinton White House transition team

Aug 16, 2016

Former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm is part of the team planning Hillary Clinton’s move into the White House if she wins the presidency in November.

The Clinton campaign announced its White House transition team this morning.

Clinton tapped former U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to lead her White House transition team. Salazar will chair a team that includes Granholm, former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, and longtime Clinton allies Neera Tanden and Maggie Williams.

Granholm has been a highly visible Clinton supporter, including a featured appearance during last month’s Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. She’s also been rumored to be in line for a top job during a Clinton presidency.

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.
