A senior Obama administration official said on Sunday that President Barack Obama has chosen army veteran and former Procter & Gamble Chief Executive Bob McDonald as his nominee to be the next secretary of veterans affairs. Obama's announcement of McDonald will be made on Monday. If confirmed by the Senate, McDonald, 61, would be tasked with repairing the Veterans Administration, after widespread evidence of delays in military veterans getting healthcare at VA facilities.
