Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin met with President-Elect Donald Trump on Monday, and said it was, "Just an initial meeting to discuss a wide range of topics."

President-elect Donald Trump met on Monday with Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and is planning to meet with former Texas governor and GOP presidential rival Rick Perry.

"We discussed a wide range of issues...his plan and agenda for America, and how I might be able to help. It was a wonderful discussion. I really enjoyed it," said Fallin. "I'm very excited about the administration and all the wonderful things that will be done for America. I wasn’t offered a position. It was just an initial meeting to discuss a wide range of topics."   

Top aide Kellyanne Conway told Fox News on Monday that Perry is a possible contender to lead the Defense or Energy departments and that Fallin is being considered to head the Interior Department.

In a separate interview on CNN, Conway said Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker is "rumored" to be on the list for secretary of state. Mitt Romney, a former Trump critic, has been discussed as a contender for that job as well.

Conway warned against drawing any conclusions from Trump's meetings. She said: "Not everyone who consults with the president-elect or meets with him is going to be in his Cabinet."
