HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania Gov.-elect Tom Wolf says he hopes to have his Cabinet picked before his Jan. 20 inauguration.

In a brief telephone interview Thursday, the Democrat said his transition team is still in its formative stages, but that two months should be enough time to choose his top advisers.

Wolf says he hasn’t ruled out keeping some of Republican Gov. Tom Corbett’s Cabinet members and that the party affiliation of a candidate doesn’t matter as much as his or her competence and integrity.

Wolf says the transition team’s budget task force is analyzing the fiscal challenges he’ll face once he’s sworn in as governor.

The state’s Independent Fiscal Office projects a nearly $2 billion structural deficit. Wolf says he wants to have some good answers by inauguration day.
