Clinton Names Transition Team to Prep for November Win

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton announced her transition team on Tuesday to prepare for a win in November. The team is officially known as the Clinton-Kaine Transition Project.

The leadership line-up includes Ken Salazar, former secretary of interior and Colorado senator, as chair.

Other members of Clinton’s team include: former National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, Harvard Institute of Politics director Maggie Williams, Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden, and former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm.

Two of Clinton’s policy advisers, Ann O’Leary and Ed Meier, will also move to the transition team on a full-time basis.

The team’s chief economist will be Heather Boushey, Washington Center for Equitable Growth’s executive director.

The Clinton-Kaine Transition Project members have strong ties to the Clinton campaign. Tanden has been a long-time Clinton ally, while Boushey served as an economic policy adviser for her campaign.

The campaign’s announcement comes at a time when Clinton is gaining momentum in the polls, expanding her lead against Republican nominee Donald Trump. Trump’s campaign is facing serious setbacks after the nominee made a string of highly controversial remarks.

Trump chose New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to lead his transition team.

Clinton was ahead of Trump by over 5% in a recent poll from Reuters released on Friday.
