Got an email from the Agricultural Retailers Association stating the following: “As the Easter recess quickly approaches, we urge you to contact your senators to confirm Gov. Sonny Perdue as Secretary of the United States Department of Agriculture. Gov. Perdue's leadership at the department will ensure farmers, ranchers, and ag retailers have a trusted friend and advisor within the president's cabinet.”

Farm Bureau Cheers Perdue Committee Vote, Urges Full Senate to Confirm.

The following may be attributed to Zippy Duvall, President, American Farm Bureau Federation:

 “The vote by the Senate Agriculture committee to move Sonny Perdue’s nomination to the full Senate for confirmation recognizes what we’ve said all along: Gov. Perdue is supremely qualified to run the USDA. He knows agriculture inside out, from veterinary medicine to row crops to the business of handling and exporting the food Americans grow for the world. He is a real-world farmer who wants to build on farmers’ successful efforts to sustain and conserve the natural resources that surround us. He understands the great good – and serious harm – government can do to farmers and ranchers. We could not be happier or prouder to support Sonny Perdue for confirmation by the full Senate.”
