BREAKING: AP Sources: President-elect Trump selects Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson to lead State Department.

— The Associated Press (@AP) December 13, 2016

Tillerson has been considered the most problematic of the potential Secretary of State choices because of his friendly relationship with Russia. Several Republicans, notably Marco Rubio, have said they would oppose a Tillerson nomination.

Tillerson’s name was a relatively new one in the running. Originally, Rudy Giuliani, John Bolton, and Mitt Romney were considered to be at the top of Trump’s list, but the list has changed a lot over the past weeks.
