Texas, our Texas....
Don't say I didn't warn you:
Perry on Twitter made the announcement saying that he had been contacted by the Trump transition team Wednesday morning. Perry did not reference what role he was contacted for but did say, “Just got the call from Trump team, saddle up and ride.” But Gene Hall with the Texas Farm Bureau says Perry would make a great addition as Trump agriculture secretary.
“One thing that Rick Perry has always been good at is connecting with farmers and ranchers. He is one of us, he was involved in farming and ranching in Haskell before becoming commissioner,” Hall says.
Hall says Perry would offer farmers across the country more of the Texas farming perspective.
