President-elect Donald Trump is expected to name North Dakota Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp Agriculture Secretary, according to news reports.

If she accepts the post, Politico reports, the Democrats could lose Heitkamp's seat to a Republican in a special election.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky met Tuesday with GOP Rep. Kevin Cramer, who has said he would challenge Heitkamp in 2018, The Hill reports.

Trump has been considering Heitkamp for Agriculture or Energy secretary, according to Politico.

They met at Trump Tower in New York earlier this month.
