On October 18, President Trump nominated Dan Brouillette to replace Rick Perry as the Secretary of Energy.
Dan Brouillette has been the Deputy Secretary of Energy since 2017. His broad experience in Washington includes stints as a top lobbyist for the Ford Motor Company, the chief of staff for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and senior Energy Department roles in multiple administrations.
As an inside nominee aligned closely with the current administration, this is a relatively safe nomination in an administration pulled facing many battlefronts.
Perry indicated he would resign from the post before the end of this year.
