Leading contenders emerge to replace Zinke as Interior secretary

President Trump said he plans to announce this week his pick to replace Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who will be leaving the administration at the end of the year.

The likely contenders have experience on congressional committees overseeing the Interior Department or hail from Western states, an important factor considering Interior’s outsized influence in the West.

Trump’s eventual pick will need to go through the Senate confirmation process.
