President Barack Obama has decided on Jeh Johnson, former Pentagon General Counsel, as his next Homeland Security secretary, an administration official said.
Johnson’s nomination will be announced by Obama tomorrow, according to the official, who asked for anonymity because the decision hasn’t been made public.
The nomination is subject to Senate confirmation. He would replace Janet Napolitano, who left the administration at the end of August to become head of the University of California system.
