Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Thehill.com: “Rhode Island governor reportedly a finalist to be Biden's Health secretary”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo (D) is reportedly a finalist to serve as Health and Human Services secretary in the incoming Biden administration. 

A transition official told NBC News that Raimondo is a leading contender for the position. Sources close to Raimondo confirmed to 12 News that she appears to be a “serious contender” for the position. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity. 

Raimondo is in her second term as governor, and cannot seek a third term due to term limits, according to the news outlet. She reportedly made a strong impression when she was interviewed for the vice presidency. 

However, 12 News notes that the way she’s managed the COVID-19 pandemic has recently come under criticism, since cases have risen more than in neighboring states. 

The news outlet also notes that she could run into resistance from Democrats over the way she handled Rhode Island’s pension overhaul in 2011, as well as her past career in the financial services industry.
