Obama to name Ken Salazar as Interior Secretary on Wednesday

President-elect Barack Obama will name U.S. Sen. Ken Salazar (D-Denver) as U.S. Secretary of the Interior during a Wednesday morning press conference in Chicago, the Colorado Independent's Ernest Luning is reporting.

Obama will also name former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack as Secretary of Agriculture, the Independent reported -- a job Ken's brother John Salazar had been considered a favorite for before he was appointed to the House Appropriations Committee last week.
