President-elect Donald Trump revealed on Friday the people who will make up the executive committee of his transition team.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence will take over the team from New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has served as chairman of the transition team since May.
Christie said in a statement he was “proud” to have led the transition team for the last few months. Christie’s approval rating dropped to an all-time low this month after two of his former aides were found guilty of all charges in the Bridgegate scandal.
Christie, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Dr. Ben Carson, retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn and Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) will serve as vice chairs of the committee.
