Romney 'under active consideration' for State
BEDMINSTER, N.J. - Vice President-elect Mike Pence says Mitt Romney is "under active consideration" by President-elect Donald Trump to be nominated as Trump's secretary of state, "along with some other very distinguished Americans."
In an interview with "Fox News Sunday," Pence says Romney's recent meeting with Trump was a "warm and substantive" exchange. He said the team spent about an hour together and that Romney and Trump did have some private time.
Pence says overall, "it was a cordial meeting."
Pence also says repealing President Barack Obama's health care plan is the new administration's first priority. He says Trump "wants to focus out of the gate" on repealing "Obamacare."
