Former Ohio Leader Tapped To Head President-Elect Trump's Transition Team

President elect Donald Trump has tapped an Ohioan to head his domestic transition team.

Former Ohio Treasurer and Secretary of State Ken Blackwell will head a team working to formulate the president-elect's domestic policy, specifically developing education, transportation, environmental, and health and human service policy. It's a big comeback for Blackwell, a staunch conservative who's been out of elected office since he lost in a landslide to Democratic former Governor Ted Strickland in 2006. Most recently, Blackwell has been working at the conservative Family Research Council, a national conservative Christian think tank and lobbying organization.
