TOM KLUDT 6:20 AM EST, FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1, 2013

President Barack Obama's top pick to succeed outgoing Labor Secretary Hilda Solis is Colorado Lieutenant Governor Joe Garcia (D), a source told Reuters Thursday.

From Reuters:

Garcia, a Hispanic former president of Colorado State University-Pueblo, would bring racial diversity and a Western flair to Obama's team.

The president has faced criticism for failing to choose women and minority candidates for cabinet vacancies at the departments of state, defense, and treasury.

Garcia, through a spokesman, declined to comment. The White House also declined to comment.
