Donald Trump is expected today to announce Elaine Chao as his pick for transportation secretary, sources confirmed to ABC News.
A formal announcement is expected this afternoon.
She served as labor secretary under George W. Bush and was the only Cabinet official to serve through all eight years of his presidency. She was the first Asian-American female member of a U.S. Cabinet.
