Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating, a Republican, is the latest person rumored to be the frontrunner to become the next president of the American Council of Life Insurers.
Keatings’ name has been mentioned frequently in recent days as a possible candidate for the ACLI position, but National Underwriter was unable to confirm the rumors.
However, the National Journal, a respected Capitol Hill magazine, yesterday published an item saying that the “buzz” around town is that Keating is the frontrunner.
ACLI continues to decline any comment on its search process.
A call to Keating’s office was not immediately returned.
According to Keating’s official biography, the 58-year-old governor is a former special agent for the FBI.
