Representative Finkenauer in contention for Biden's Labor secretary

Source: Reuters

(Reuters) - Abby Finkenauer, one of the youngest women in Congress, is among the contenders to become Democratic President-elect Joe Bidenís Labor Secretary, according to three people familiar with the selection process.

Finkenauer, 31, an Iowa congresswoman who is personally and politically close to Biden, is among at least five names being considered for the Labor Secretary post, the people familiar with deliberations told Reuters. The sources asked not to be named because they are not authorized to discuss Bidenís search process.

A spokesman for Bidenís transition declined to comment.

Finkenauer entered the U.S. House of Representatives two years ago - having just turned 30 - but lost re-election in her Republican-leaning district this November. Biden is keen to have her play a role in his new administration and she is also being considered for other posts, the sources said.
