Janet Napolitano will continue as Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security into President Obama’s second term, the White House confirmed to The Hill.

Napolitano joins Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and Attorney General Eric Holder as members of the president’s Cabinet who have announced their intention to return.
