Just crossing URGENT WIRES in the newsroom... Republican Senator Judd Gregg is now confirming and responding to reports that POTUS has his eye on him to be a Cabinet Member.

Sen. Gregg says he knows he's being considered for job of Commerce Secretary and honored to be... but, cannot comment further.

Interesting if this happens 'cuz that would leave a Senate seat open--AGAIN... and, it's possible New Hamshire's Democrat Governor could pick a fellow Dem to fill it-- giving Dems their sought after filibuster-proof majority of 60 seats.

H- out
