Donald Trump's transition team said Wednesday that the president-elect has narrowed his choice for secretary of state down to four, Politico reported.

Transition senior communications adviser Sean Spicer wouldn't say which four, but Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani are believed to be the front-runners.

Spicer also said there's no timetable for when Trump will announce his pick, only to say that it wouldn't be this week.

"At this time, the secretary of state position has been narrowed down to four potential candidates," Spicer said on a conference call, according to Politico. "But to that point, we do not anticipate any further Cabinet appointments the rest of this week."

In addition to Romney and Giuliani, Trump has met with or reportedly considered four others for the cabinet position:

  • Sen. Bob Corker.
  • Former Ambassador John Bolton.
  • Former CIA Director David Petraeus.
  • Retired Gen. John Kelly.

"Obviously, you have Gov. Romney, who he's been chatting with, and Mayor Giuliani, who's been under strong consideration as well," communications director Jason Miller was quoted by Politico.

"But since those have been a little more openly discussed, I'll go ahead and leave it at that so I don't get ahead of the president-elect for where he is in the process."
