Manchin Votes To Confirm Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV), voted to confirm Tom Vilsack as U.S. Secretary of Agriculture.

“Today I voted to confirm Tom Vilsack as Secretary of Agriculture. Tom and I served together as Governors, and I know from personal experience that he will work tirelessly to get the job done. Tom is undoubtedly qualified to lead the U.S. Department of Agriculture and proved during his previous tenure as Secretary of Agriculture that he prioritizes rural America and providing assistance to those who need it most. Secretary Vilsack brings experience and a steady hand to the Biden Administration and I look forward to working with Secretary Vilsack as he works to bolster the agriculture industry, expand rural access to broadband, and create good-paying jobs for West Virginians and Americans.”
