President-elect Donald Trump has chosen Dr. Ben Carson, a onetime political rival who became one of his leading surrogates on the campaign trail, to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development. ... Carson said recently through a spokesperson that he did not feel prepared to run a federal agency, but he has since changed his mind.When the President(-elect) calls you and asks you to serve, I suspect most people have the sense of duty to not decline, especially if you're of the same party.
However, Carson may not have to relocate anytime soon:
Multiple Democratic senators told POLITICO in interviews last week that after watching Republicans sit on Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court for nearly a year, they’re in no mood to fast-track Trump’s selections.One of the oldest rules in politics is "I'll do unto you like you did unto me."
I'll be surprised if a new Supreme Court justice is seated before 2018.
