Missouri Farm Bureau President Charlie Kruse has withdrawn his name from consideration for U-S secretary of agriculture. Kruse was considered to be one of the leading candidates to fill the post since Ann Veneman stepped down earlier this week. In a statement, Kruse cited the loss of his son Ben over the past summer as part of the reason for turning down the position. He said he wanted to spend more time with his family and a cabinet position would not allow that.
