The transition process begins as leading presidential contenders forming a transition team to start making preliminary plans for building an administration and assuming the presidency should they be elected. This can take place at any time of the candidate’s choosing. Candidate Mitt Romney established a transition team in June 2012 (after some preparatory work in April and May), which was before he became the Republican Party nominee. Barack Obama followed a similar timeline for establishing his transition team in 2008. During the 2016 presidential election cycle, in 2016, Donald Trump began assembling his transition team in May, after he became the presumptive Republican nominee. His fall campaign opponent, Hillary Clinton, lagged behind in this regard, not forming a team until August, which was after she became the Democratic Party nominee.
