Governor-elect Haley to make second Cabinet pick

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov.-elect Nikki Haley is announcing her second Cabinet pick.

Haley, who will be sworn into office in January, is scheduled to reveal her second choice Wednesday morning. It comes two days after she announced that she wants BMW executive and former newspaper editor Bobby Hitt to lead the state Commerce Department.

The Cabinet consists of 15 agency heads who report to the governor.

The state Senate must confirm all Cabinet nominations.

Outgoing Republican Gov. Mark Sanford held his last Cabinet meeting on Tuesday.
