Pence In, Christie Out As Trump Transition Team Head

Vice President-elect Mike Pence

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is out and Vice President-elect Mike Pence is now running Donald Trump’s transition team as Trump gets ready to assume the presidency.

Christie becomes a “vice-chair” and Pence elevates to the lead due, no doubt, to his six terms as a Congressman. Christie has become much less visible in the Trump camp since the guilty verdicts in the Bridge-Gate scandal were handed down.

Republican National Committee chair Reince Priebus, who gained Trump’s trust over the long haul of the general election, is being rumored as front runner for the all-important role of Chief of Staff.

The transition team includes three of the Trump children – Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump – plus Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Trump campaign CEO Steve Bannon, campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, Newt Gingrich, Rudy Giuliani and Sen. Jeff Sessions are also part of the transition camp.
