MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A former Tennessee lawmaker is reportedly in the running for a position in the Trump Administration.

Sources report Harold Ford Jr. could be considered for a transportation or infrastructure post.

To date, Ford has not meet with President-elect Donald Trump, but he has been approached about the possibility.

“He’s happy doing what he’s doing,” a source close to Ford told POLITICO. “If the President-elect called, then of course, he would listen carefully.”

Ford began his political career at the age of 26, winning his father’s congressional seat here in the state of Tennessee. The politician eventually lost the seat to Republican Bob Corker and moved to New York.

In all he served five terms in Congress.

Ford is currently working for Morgan Stanley.
