Barletta, Marino Named to Trump Transition Team

barletta-marinoLoyalty can have its perks.

PA Congressmen Lou Barletta and Tom Marino, who both endorsed Trump back in March, have been named to his transition team.

This new group will be led by Vice President-Elect Mike Pence, who is taking over from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Among the sixteen additions are three of Trump’s children, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric, as well as his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The full list is presented below:

Congressman Lou Barletta
Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn
Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi
Congressman Chris Collins
Jared Kushner
Congressman Tom Marino
Rebekah Mercer
Steven Mnuchin
Congressman Devin Nunes
Anthony Scaramucci
Peter Thiel
Donald Trump Jr.
Eric Trump
Ivanka Trump
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
Trump Campaign CEO Stephen K. Bannon

Another name that stands out is Bondi’s. A $25,000 donation to the Florida AG while she contemplated investigating Trump University was the subject of controversy during the campaign. The FEC eventually fined the Trump campaign $2,500 for using foundation money to donate to her campaign.

Congressman Barletta released the following statement:

“It is a great honor to be asked by the next President of the United States to be part of the team that will help put together the new administration to take office in just two months. As I said many times during the campaign, I have seen the ‘Board Room Donald Trump’ when I sat in meetings with him. In those sessions, he always sought the input of those around him and listened to their opinions and ideas. I anticipate that he will expect similar counsel from his transition team. It is an exciting time, as we will be assembling the people who will be tackling the problems facing the country and making America great again. I appreciate the confidence President-Elect Trump has shown in me and I take on the responsibility with humility and the resolve to perform to the best of my abilities.”
