Source Tells AP Ken Salazar Leaving Team Obama
Salazar has run the Interior Department throughout President Barack Obama’s first term. Before joining the Cabinet, he served as a senator from Colorado. Salazar began his tenure with a pledge to help reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. He told his confirmation hearing he would seek to expand renewable energy on public lands and promote the ‘‘wise use’’ of traditional energy sources.
He is the latest Cabinet secretary to leave the administration as Obama heads into his second term.
