Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has emerged as a "serious" contender to become the next U.S. secretary of state, a top aide to President-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday, amid reports of intense infighting over key posts in the new administration.Trump – the 70-year-old Republican billionaire who takes office in just nine weeks – was to meet with Vice President-elect Mike Pence later Tuesday in New York to discuss the next round of cabinet appointments.Giuliani, a member of Trump's inner circle, had been considered a leading candidate for attorney general, but at a public forum in Washington Monday, he said he would not be heading the Justice Department.On Sunday, he named Reince Priebus, a mainstream Republican operative who backed Trump as chairman of the Republican National Committee, as his White House chief of staff.Trump however did not request that this step be taken, and the Trump children have not started filling out paperwork for such clearances, a transition official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
