President Obama Picks New Transportation Secretary

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A White House official says President Barack Obama will nominate Charlotte, N.C., Mayor Anthony Foxx, a rising star in Democratic politics, to run the Transportation Department.
   The official says Obama will announce the nomination from the White House Monday afternoon. The official requested anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss the nomination ahead of the president.
   Foxx will be the first black nominee among Obama's picks for open spots in his second-term Cabinet. The president has faced questions, including from the Congressional Black Caucus, about a lack of diversity in his first round of nominations after winning re-election.
