Joe Biden’s longtime National Security Adviser in the presidential election, Antony Brinken, is a key candidate to become Secretary of State candidate for Biden.
People familiar with the Biden team’s plans told The Associated Press that Brinken was at the forefront of his choice to become America’s top diplomat.
Brinken served as Deputy Secretary of State and Deputy Secretary of State during the Obama administration.
Once selected and confirmed, he will be the driving force behind Biden’s bid to rebuild US global relations four years after President Donald Trump questioned the long-standing alliance.
The president-elect is moving quickly to fill his administration and can be nominated as another best cabinet candidate as early as next week.
Biden’s team is considering releasing his cabinet pick in a group focused on a particular topic area. Such a move aims to convey the message that Biden is enthusiastic about preparing the president, even if President Donald Trump refuses to admit and tries to overturn the election results.
