Earlier this week, we learned that President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway turned down an offer to be the White House Press Secretary because it would interfere with raising her 4 children.
With Conway out, a new name has emerged as a possible candidate for the job, Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer, who many consider the new frontrunner for the job.
RNC and Trump transition spokesman Sean Spicer is now the favorite to become White House Press Secretary, sources tell CNN.

In addition to his job at the RNC, Spicer currently is the spokesman for Trump’s transition team, and in recent days has been forced to deal with the onslaught of media reports claiming that the Russian government hacked the RNC, which Spicer and Chairman Reince Priebus have denied.
Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham and Fox News contributor Monica Crowley have also been rumored to be on Trump’s short list for press secretary, but no official announcement has been made as of yet.
Katrina Pearson, who served as Trump’s national campaign spokeswoman, is also being considered for the job, but since Conway, who was Trump’s top choice for the job, declined the position, the field is now wide open.
Spicer, if selected, would become the second RNC official, along with Reince Priebus, to join the Trump administration, which has sought to distance itself from Washington and establishment politicians.
