WASHINGTON (AP) - Despite the speculation, Chicago businesswoman Penny Pritzker says she's not a contender to be the next Secretary of Commerce.
Pritzer was national finance chairman for President-elect Barack Obama's election campaign. Officials now say Laura D'Andrea Tyson, the former chair of White House Council of Economic Advisers under President Clinton, is in the running for the Commerce job.
Advisers to Obama say no official announcements are being made yet on Cabinet posts. But unofficially, the roster may include: Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano as a possible secretary of homeland security; Washington lawyer Eric Holder as attorney general; and former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle as health and human services secretary.
Aides say Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton remains a top candidate for secretary of state.
