DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – President-elect Donald Trump’s transition efforts are in full swing, and with them an ironic twist in regard to former Gov. Rick Perry.
There’s discussion of Perry as a potential Energy Secretary, according to the Wall Street Journal.
If that happens, it means Perry would head up the very department whose name he forgot — the Department of Energy — during a GOP debate in 2011. He had also pledged to eliminate the federal agency during that campaign.
CBS11 News reached out to Perry’s spokesman but have yet to hear back.
