>> So that we can work together.>> President-elect Donald Trump's early list of potential appointments to top positions appearing to reward people who were loyal to him during a campaign that divided the Republican Party. Sources tell Reuters former House Speaker, Newt Gingrich, and US Senator Bob Cocker of Tennessee are considered potential picks for secretary of state.
00:00:23
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who is heading up Trump's transition team, is being considered for the posts of commerce secretary or the homeland security secretary. But appointing Christie may not be that easy after guilty verdicts were handed down to two of his former advisors in the Bridgegate trial.
00:00:41
Christie is also being considered for attorney general, as is another Trump loyalist, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Another possibility for attorney general, Senator Jeff Sessions of Alabama, who has prominently pressed for a crack-down on immigration. Sessions is also being considered as the defense secretary. The same sources also said Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus, who has emerged as a trusted advisor to Trump, is also being talked about as a potential White House chief of staff.

Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, who some say helped reign in the candidate, could be chosen as a White House senior advisor. And sources say retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who endorsed Trump after dropping out of the race, is a possible pick for education secretary.
