FedTracker: Obama to appoint Richardson at Commerce

New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson will head the Commerce Department in the Barack Obama administration, Reuters reports.


Richardson is a former United Nations ambassador and energy secretary, and threw his support behind Obama after ending his own White House bid earlier this year.


Reuters, citing a "senior Democratic source," reported that Obama will officially announce the appointment at a Wednesday press conference.
