GRAND RAPIDS - Exxon Mobil Corp Chief Executive Rex Tillerson emerged on Friday as President-elect Donald Trump's leading candidate for US secretary of state, a senior transition official said.

Trump met Tillerson on Tuesday and may talk to him again over the weekend, the official said. Trump appears to be in the final days of deliberations over his top diplomat with an announcement possible next week.

The transition official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Tillerson had moved ahead in Trump's deliberations over 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who has met Trump twice, including a dinner in New York.
