Jim Webb, the former Virginia senator and Reagan-era Navy secretary, is reportedly on the short list of names to replace Jim Mattis as defense secretary.
Chafee previously served as mayor, U.S. senator and governor of Rhode Island.

Income inequality, gun control, Black Lives Matter—important issues the candidates should address.
Democratic candidates are talking police, prison and criminal reform. Not so the Republicans.
He initially shared his decision with his supporters via email.
