Ag Secretary Named…

And it’s not a real shocker.  Tom Vilsack…Iowa Governor and former Presidential hopeful.  I think Vilsack will be a good Secretary, I have a few concerns about the Iowa “trifecto” though.  You’ve got Tom Harken (D-IA) leading the Senate Majority Ag Committee.  Then you’ve got Charles Grassley (R-IA) on the Minority Committee (not in charge, but he’s no light weight).  And now Vilsack heading up Ag.  Seems like a lot of Iowa to me.

We’ve got some Western States that could use some representation…California, Oregon, and Washington are no slouches when it comes to agriculture, yet Montana is the most Western State on the Senate Ag Committee.
