White House official: AG, HHS, VA heads to stay
WASHINGTON - A White House official says Attorney General Eric Holder and the secretaries of Health and Human Services and Veterans Affairs will remain with the Obama administration as it enters a second term.
The official said Holder, who leads the Justice Department, and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and VA Secretary Eric Shinseki will remain with the administration amid changes to the Cabinet as President Barack Obama moves into his second term.
Labor Secretary Hilda Solis submitted her resignation.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss personnel changes, said the three remaining officials were not an exhaustive list of which Cabinet members intended to stay.
Obama has received some criticism that his initial Cabinet choices for the State Department and Defense Department do not reflect the nation's diversity.
