Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney “is under active and serious consideration” to be Donald Trump’s secretary of state, Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Sunday, a move that would moderate the direction of the president-elect’s national security team inside a rapidly expanding administration.

Trump’s remaining high-profile selections include the economic team that will join him at the White House. He continues to press for J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. Chief Executive James Dimon to be the next Treasury secretary, said people familiar with the conversations. But the choice may well come down to investment banker Steven Mnuchin or Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling, they said.

Those choices likely won’t be announced until after Thanksgiving, said Reince Priebus, the former Republican National Committee chairman whom Trump tapped to become his chief of staff.
