U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., will be traveling to New York to meet with the president-elect Monday in Trump Tower, according to Donald Trump’s transition spokesman Sean Spicer.
In the weeks since the election, Trump has been meeting with a steady stream of lawmakers, businessmen, military leaders and media figures in his 58th floor triplex.
Trump’s transition team has said they are all “high-quality individuals,” and the president-elect is meeting with some of them in order to listen to their advice. Others are there for job interviews as Trump picks his cabinet and begins to put together his administration.
It is not clear whether Mulvaney will be discussing a role in the Trump Administration.
Never miss a local story.
The S.C. Republican from Indian Land is a co-founder of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and a member of the House Financial Services Committee.
Unlike many who Trump has called up for meetings, Mulvaney was not an early Trump backer during the GOP primary campaign. Mulvaney initially endorsed U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., before stating his support for Trump in June.
Mulvaney, who has represented South Carolina’s 5th District since 2011, just won a re-election bid after being challenged by a former aide to Vice President Joe Biden.
Mulvaney, who has been speculated to be a potential GOP candidate for S.C. governor in 2018, did not respond to a request for comment.
