LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Three Michigan democrats are reportedly being considered to lead major departments in President-Elect Joe Biden’s administration that include U.S. Representative Elissa Slotkin on a short list to head up the CIA.

Representative Slotkin is a former CIA intelligence analyst who served in Iraq three times under former presidents Obama and George W. Bush.

U.S. Representative Andy Levin, from Bloomfield Township, is under consideration to lead the U.S. Department of Labor.
