Kathleen Sebelius, governor of Kansas, has accepted President Barack Obama's nomination as secretary of Health and Human Services, White House sources are reporting this evening.
Obama plans to announce the selection on Monday, according to the Associated Press, citing a source. The Washington Post reports the same word.
Sebelius has long been seen as a likely prospect for the Cabinet post, since former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle withdrew from consideration after paying more than $100,000 in back taxes and penalties for limousine services. (Link)
