Two of Missouri’s members of Congress on the agriculture committees back the idea of a Missourian to become part of President Bush’s cabinet. Missouri Farm Bureau President Charlie Kruse could be considered for Secretary of Agriculture. Senator Jim Talent is on the Senate Agriculture Committee.

So far, Kruse has not commented.
