President Announces Choice to Head SBA

President Donald Trump Thursday announced that he plans to nominate Jovita Carranza to replace Linda McMahon as as head of the Small Business Administration (SBA). McMahon is stepping down April 12 to head up the American First Action super PAC.  Carranza currently serves as U.S. treasurer within the Treasury Department, and previously served as deputy SBA administrator under President George W. Bush.

Carranza was a strong Trump ally during his 2016 campaign, during which she served as a member of his National Hispanic Advisory Council.
