Grassley Meets With Ag Secretary Nominee Today

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley will meet today with former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue, President Trump’s pick to be the next secretary of agriculture.

Grassley says he’s not particularly concerned that Perdue hasn’t been a farmer, though he’s was involved in the ag industry and became a veterinarian before entering politics.

Grassley says the “institution of the family farm is what’s strong about American agriculture,” and he wants to hear Perdue’s views on that. The most recent U-S¬†Agriculture Secretary was Tom Vilsack, a former Iowa governor.
