Less than 24 hours after the announcement of Donald Trump's presidential victory, rumors and talk of appointments in the new administration have already begun.

According to The Wall Street Journal, President-elect Trump's transition team is assembling a list of people to be considered for filling some of the key roles in the administration.

The WSJ reports Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson is being discussed for attorney general, along with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

However, when asked at a press conference Wednesday afternoon if he would consider serving in the Trump administration, Gov. Hutchinson answered, "No...how's that for clarity?" Hutchinson also said he did not anticipate a Trump victory in the 2016 presidential election.

Other notables being discussed for various staff and cabinet roles include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and former primary rival Ben Carson.
