President-elect Donald Trump is considering US Senator of Kansas Jerry Morgan for Secretary of Agriculture in his administration.
Trump’s transition team began talks with Moran in regards to the position for the US Department of Agriculture but the decision has not been made yet, The Hill news site said on Friday.
