President Obama has chosen Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) to succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, according to a report.
Obama will announce his choice of Kerry in the coming weeks, the Chicago Sun-Times reported, citing a source.
The White House has not confirmed the selection.
It is widely known that Kerry was interested in the job, and the former presidential nominee emerged as the clear favorite after another contender, UN Ambassador Susan Rice, withdrew from consideration last week.
