The Post said:
Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.), a former Navy pilot who is one of Congress’s leading space exploration advocates, has had informal conversations with the Trump campaign about serving as NASA administrator or secretary of the Air Force, according to an official close to the congressman who is not authorized to speak publicly.
“He’s made it clear to the campaign that if asked to serve as NASA Administrator or Air Force secretary, he would be willing,” the official said. The person added that there would likely be “a clearer path to NASA” than the Air Force.
Bridenstine is a member of the hardline House Freedom Caucus that has often clashed with House Republican leaders. He was a strong backer of Trump during the general election — so much so, he threatened to withdraw his support from House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) after Ryan said he would no longer campaign for or defend Trump.
The Washington Post and other national sources are confirming that The Donald Trump administration is serious about naming Jim Bridenstine to a top post in either NASA or as the Air Force Secretary.
