LaHood Won’t Discuss Role in New Cabinet Until New Year

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood won’t discuss his plans with President Obama about staying in his position in the new administration until after the new year, the Peoria (Ill.) Journal Star reported.

LaHood said he had a conversation with the president about his future shortly after the election, the paper reported.

LaHood, formerly a Republican congressman representing Peoria, spoke that that city’s Rotary Club on Friday, telling the group his position is a “very bipartisan job,” the Journal Star said.

LaHood had said in October 2011 that he would not stay in the Cabinet if there were a second Obama administration and that he would seek opportunities in the private sector.
