Guilfoyle, a host of the Fox opinion panel show, “The Five,” was seen recently at Trump Tower for lunch with senior Trump transition team members, Politico said on Wednesday, citing two unidentified sources.

Republican National Committee and Trump transition spokesman Sean Spicer is still seen as a leading contender for position, as is another Fox News personality, Laura Ingraham.


Other names floated for the job include Trump campaign spokeswoman Katrina Pierson and The Daily Mail’s U.S. political editor, David Martosko.

Guilfoyle is a former assistant district attorney in San Francisco. She was once married to former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat.

She is said to have a friendly relationship with Trump's oldest daughter, Ivanka, and Ivanka's husband, publisher Jared Kushner.

Trump and his team are expected to make a decision about the position before the end of the week.
