WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama will nominate Commerce Secretary Gary Locke as next US ambassador to China, two US officials said on Monday.

Locke would replace the current ambassador, Jon Huntsman, who is stepping down on April 30 and is considering a run for president in which he'd join a field of Republicans vying to challenge Obama in the 2012 election.
