Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge passed through the press gaggle watching comings and goings at the Trump transition HQ in Trump Tower in New York and said she was open to a job in the Trump administration.

From Reuters:

Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge said on Thursday she was open to working in the incoming Trump administration, saying she wanted to do whatever she could to help roll back regulations that are hurting U.S. businesses.

"My interest is in helping the Trump administration," Rutledge told reporters as she arrived for meetings at Trump Tower in New York. "Whether that's continuing on as the attorney general of Arkansas or (working) in the administration, then my ears are open."

She declined to say who she was scheduled to meet with.
Watch her here. "out of control regulations....more people have jobs....very excited to be here" yadda yadda.

"You always take the call when the White House calls," she said.

UPDATE: Press spokesman Judd Deere is along for the trip, but not the attorney general's team of security officers, who've frequently accompanied her on travels.
