Reports are now coming out that former Texas Governor Rick Perry is scheduled to meet with Donald Trump on Monday, and there are indicators that he’s being looked at for a few different jobs. Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs tweeted out a list of possibilities:
SCOOP: Ex-Texas Gov Rick Perry scheduled to meet with Trump Monday as possible Defense Secretary. @GovernorPerry eyed for Ag, Energy, VA too

Given his background, Perry could be considered qualified for any of the jobs. He has the military background for Defense and Veteran’s Affairs, Texas has huge energy production (especially given the huge oil deposit discovered in the western part of the state recently), and Perry is also a former Texas Commissioner of Agriculture.
We’ll see if the meeting becomes a job interview.
