Sources confirm to 11Alive News that former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue is in New York City interviewing with President-elect Donald Trump.

Perdue told WMAZ, 11Alive's partner station in Macon, Trump's transition team asked him to make the trip to meet with them about the possibility of serving in his administration.

"And that's what I'm going to do," Perdue said. He would not confirm rumors he was being considered for Secretary of Agriculture.

Perdue served as Georgia's governor from 2003 to 2011. He served in the Air Force before working as a veterinarian and small business owner. He entered politics when he was elected to the Georgia State Senate as a Democrat in 1990. He continued to serve in office through 1998 when he switched parties.

Perdue was an early Trump supporter and was instrumental in getting Vice President-elect Mike Pence to make a campaign stop in Perry.
