A former Democratic presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg has been named a front-runner to be the Transportation Secretary to President-elect Joe Biden.
Several sources reportedly told the CNN that the former presidential candidate and South Bend, Ind., mayor has a real shot at the position currently held by Elaine Chao, although others are still under consideration.
The list of those who have been previously floated includes former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo.
Buttigieg this year became the first openly gay major Democratic presidential candidate. If Biden selects him for the role, and if he is confirmed, Buttigieg would make history again as the first LBGTQ+ Cabinet secretary.
