Farm Groups Endorse Agriculture Secretary Nominee Perdue


More than 650 agriculture organizations have endorsed President Donald Trump’s pick to lead the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In a letter to House and Senate agriculture leaders last week, 669 agricultural organizations endorsed Sonny Perdue, the nominee for Agriculture Secretary.

A Trump transition team official says the letter was written on behalf of “farmers, ranchers…and all other segments of the agriculture community.” The letter urged Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts, a Republican from Kansas, to hold a prompt hearing to move Sonny Perdue’s nomination to the full Senate for a vote.

Highlighting Perdue’s personal and professional life in the letter, the groups agreed that he is “imminently qualified” to lead USDA. Perdue, a former Republican governor of Georgia, said he was “honored that so many organizations came together to support” his nomination. Perdue has also received the endorsement of former USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack.
