WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement today after the U.S. Senate voted to confirm Gov. Sonny Perdue as Secretary for the U.S. Department of Agriculture:

“Congratulations to Governor Perdue who will make a great Ag Secretary. Perdue understands the Ag industry better than most, and his experience as the governor of a farm state ensures he understands the importance of maintaining a strong crop insurance program for our farmers. The expertise he brings to the Trump Administration will be greatly appreciated during the upcoming 2018 Farm Bill, and I look forward to working with him as we move forward this Congress.”
