The Charlotte, N.C. Observer and the Huffington Post are reporting that Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx will replace Ray LaHood as USDOT Secretary and the White House has confirmed his nomination late Sunday afternoon.

Foxx was elected Mayor in 2009 but doesn’t appear to have an extensive background in transportation. The White House says what he does have though is knowledge of the type of infrastructure needed to create jobs and compete in a globe economy.

Transportation Issues Daily has more on this move and Foxx’s background.
