Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton are the leading candidates for secretary of state in the incoming Donald Trump administration, The Wall Street Journal reports, citing two sources close to the process.

Giuliani, a longtime Trump friend who served as a campaign surrogate, has previously been announced as a possible attorney general candidate. Giuliani was a federal prosecutor before his election as mayor.

Asked about a possible role in the Trump White House on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday, Giuliani said, "I have a very, very full life. So it would have to be something where I felt he really needed me and — not that I'd be the only one that could do it, but maybe that I could do it a little bit different or a little bit better than somebody else."

Bolton, who served as U.N. ambassador in the George W. Bush administration, is a hawk on military issues and frequent Fox News guest who called for bombing Iran in 2015.

Bolton did not comment to the Journal, nor did the Trump transition team.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus was named chief of staff on Sunday, and campaign CEO Stephen Bannon was named chief strategist. Fox News reported on Monday that other appointments could be coming on Sunday, but the Journal said its sources said the secretary of state position might not be filled for several weeks.
