Former Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack has publicly stated his support of Sonny Perdue, Former Governor of Georgia, to serve as his successor.
“I have had the opportunity to work with Gov. Perdue and know how committed he is to all of our farmers, ranchers and producers, regardless of size or production method," Vilsack said in a written statement. "As a former governor, he knows full well the opportunities and challenges that exist in rural communities. He will, I am sure, work hard to expand opportunity in rural America."
