The White House is talking to other possible Federal Reserve candidates, even as the Trump administration stands by its two picks for the U.S. central bank, Larry Kudlow said Tuesday.

Kudlow, the National Economic Council director, told reporters outside the White House that the administration is still backing Herman Cain and Stephen Moore.

Politico reported earlier Tuesday that other candidates for the Fed job are being interviewed and considered. Asked for comment on this report, Kudlow said: “We’re talking to a number of candidates, we always do.”

Enough Senate Republicans have expressed opposition to Cain that it seems his nomination cannot succeed.
