Trump bypasses Jeff Miller for VA chief



Donald Trump today said he would nominate David Shulkin to lead the Veterans Affairs department, formally closing off Florida's Jeff Miller from contention.

Miller, who just retired from Congress, was among the names kicked around for the job but his chances never rose above that speculation.

Shulkin is current undersecretary for health at the VA.
