John Mica passed over as Trump's transportation secretary
Donald Trump is expected to announce his transportation secretary later today and it's not Florida's John Mica, the subject of a lot of early speculation.
Elaine Chao, a former deputy transportation secretary who also ran the Labor Department, is going to get the nod, according to reports.
Mica, of Winer Park, wanted the job and oversaw the House transportation committee. He lost re-election in November to Stephanie Murphy, a political newcomer who capitalized on a redrawn Orlando-area district that pulled in more Democrats.
