Edward Davis rumored to be candidate for top Homeland Security post

Boston police commissioner Edward F. Davis is beginning to be mentioned as a candidate for the next secretary of Homeland Security, with speculation in Washington and Boston suggesting that he may be in the mix for the prominent federal post.

Senators, who expect President Obama to announce his nomination within the next few weeks, have been told that the White House is vetting “a handful of people” for the position, according to a Senate source familiar with the talks but who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
