WASHINGTON (USA Today) -- President Obama is poised to nominate White House Chief Jack Lew for Treasury Secretary, perhaps as early as Thursday.
Lew would replace Timothy Geithner, who has announced he wants to leave the Treasury Department in mid-January.
An official who has been briefed on the process confirmed the selection, speaking on condition of anonymity because Obama has not made the official announcement.
