Former Sen. Dan Coats Leading Candidate for Director of National Intelligence

Former Sen. Dan Coats of Indiana is a leading candidate for Director of National Intelligence in Donald Trump’s administration, according to three senior Trump transition officials.

Coats, 73, made a visit to Trump Tower late last year and said at the time that he was not seeking a position. He was a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee during his term, which ended this year after he decided not to seek re-election.
