While several names have been floated to replace recently resigned White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, most would agree there are only really two true considerations.
Heather Nauert and Stephanie Grisham are by far considered to be Trump’s preferred choices, but Nauert has abruptly pulled her name from consideration.
The Front Runners
Heather Nauert has already served once in the presidential administration as the spokesperson for the State Department.
She was on deck to accept an ambassador position, but suddenly withdrew from consideration.
Afterward, she joined Fox & Friends, where she is reportedly very happy in her career as well as being able to spend more time with her family.
Stephanie Grisham currently serves as the spokesperson for Melania Trump. It goes without saying, Grisham has done an exceptional job and would clearly be a worthy successor to Sanders.
What Trump Wants…
According to the inner circle, Trump has been adamant he wants another woman in that role.
Nauert’s decision to withdraw her name from consideration now clearly makes Grisham the favorite.
There are numerous rumors flying around about Nauert that state the reason she is out for this position in the same reason she withdrew from consideration for the ambassador’s position.
Reports started to surface that she may have used a nanny at some point that did not properly vet out for legal immigration papers. That accusation has not been confirmed and Nauert has not commented on it.
The result of which puts Grisham in the driver’s seat. One other candidate to keep an eye on is Steve Cortes.
Trump likes to make a splash, and the fact Cortes would be the first Hispanic to serve in that role would definitely create one.
