Tom Vilsack drops in on eastern N.D. farm
Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack made northeast North Dakota his first stop in the state since taking office as Barack Obama’s agriculture secretary. Vilsack landed in Grand Forks on Monday, visited with U.S. Department of Agriculture scientists, and then made his big stop of the day — a fundraiser for Rep. Earl Pomeroy, D-N.D., on Pat Mahar’s farm.
