FYI

From the Washington Post

President-elect Donald Trump has chosen Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), an orthopedic surgeon who has been one of Capitol Hill's fiercest critics of President Obama's health care law, to be secretary of health and human services, a person briefed on the decision confirmed Monday night.
The public announcement of Trump's selection of Price, a six-term congressman who chairs the House Budget Committee and is regarded as a policy wonk, is expected to be made as early as Tuesday.

    1. Redundant?? what do you mean? Definition of "wonk":" a studious or hardworking person"

    2. "A person who takes an excessive interest in minor details of political policy." Upon further reflection, you used 'wonk" correctly.
