Transportation secretary leaving post

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is stepping down, a White House official said Tuesday.

LaHood joined the administration shortly after President Barack Obama's first inauguration in 2009. He becomes at least the sixth Cabinet official to say he is leaving as Obama begins his second term.
