Mitt Romney picks former Utah governor Mike Leavitt to lead transition team

Mike Leavitt, the former governor of Utah and health and human services secretary under President George W. Bush, has been charged with leading presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s transition team.

Leavitt has acted as a low-profile adviser to Romney during the campaign, and the two have been close since Leavitt, as governor, courted Romney to run the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.
