Possible Commerce pick leaves Chicago Board of Ed
CHICAGO – Businesswoman Penny Pritzker resigned from the Chicago Board of Education Thursday amid speculation that the longtime ally to President Barack Obama could be named the next U.S. Commerce secretary.
Pritzker was a top fundraiser for Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns, serving as his finance chairwoman in 2008, and is considered a leading candidate to run the Commerce Department.
The White House wouldn’t comment Thursday on her prospects of being tapped for the job.
