Sources have told ABC News former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is under consideration for secretary of veteran affairs.
Though Trump and Palin have not yet met about the the possible appointment, Palin has been in contact with the president-elect’s transition team in recent days and stated that she feels “as though the megaphone I have been provided can be used in a productive and positive way to help those desperately in need.”
The VA is the largest government agency with over 300,000 federal employees and a budget of $182 billion for 2017.
Rep. Jeff Miller and Gen. Keith Kellogg are also being considered for the position.
