Ken Blackwell Tapped To Lead Trump’s Domestic Transition Team

posted on November 12, 2016

He was secretary of state of Ohio. He was the first black nominee for governor of the state. He played a key role as honorary co-chair in George W. Bush’s strongly contested 2004 presidential race. And now, this Republican Party maverick adds one more title to his resume—President-elect Donald Trump’s selection to lead his domestic transition.

Ken Blackwell is heading up Trump’s “action team,” which will examine the departments of energy, health and human services, housing, environmental protection, labor, transportation and urban development, interior, and agriculture. 

Blackwell, the former mayor of Cincinnati, currently sits on the boards of the National Rifle Association and Club for Growth.
