Heather Nauert a ‘leading contender’ to replace Haley as UN ambassador, sources say | Fox News
THE FRONT-RUNNER? - State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert is a "leading contender" to replace Nikki Haley as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, two sources familiar with the selection process told FOX News on Monday ... Nauert, a former FOX News host, met with President Trump in the Oval Office earlier Monday, though it is not known if they discussed the position. Several other officials have been named as potential candidates, including U.S. Ambassador to France Jamie McCourt. Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, surprised many observers earlier this month when she announced she would leave the post of U.N. envoy by the end of this year.
