According to the website, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, is back in New York City today for a second meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. Transition team spokesmen say, Perry is the top contender of the four finalists in line to be the next secretary of energy.

Also in the running for the post are, Democratic Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota. The other finalist is, Dallas investor and vice chairman of the 2016 Trump Victory Committee, Ray Washburne.

Perry's experience as the former governor of an energy-producing state, would seem to make him a perfect fit for the top energy post.
