CNN: Mike Pence Replaces Chris Christie as Transition Leader
MATTINGLY: “Chris Christie, Brooke, has been leading Trump’s transition operation for months. He’s been the direct contact for the Obama White House. He has basically been running the show. Now, we have been told over the course of the last couple of weeks, Chris Christie has started to step back. Jess Sessions, the Alabama senator, has played a more robust role in the operation. Now this is news. A source tells us that Mike Pence, the vice president-elect, is now coming in to run the transition operation. Chris Christie will be bumped down to vice chairman. He will still be involved in the process, but Pence is taking the reins."
