BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer says President-elect Donald Trump’s choice of former Texas governor Rick Perry for energy secretary is a good one.

Trump also considered Cramer for the position. Trump leaned on the Republican U.S. representative for energy policy advice during his campaign, and Cramer helped write Trump’s “America first” energy plan.

Cramer had told The Associated Press last month that a position in Trump’s administration wasn’t his preference. But he says in a statement that he was honored to be considered. He says he looks forward to championing Trump’s energy agenda in Congress.
