Vilsack re-appointed to head USDA


Former governor and U.S. Agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack will keep his job in President Obama's second term.

He is expected to spend the next several months lobbying Congress to pass a farm bill that would extend agriculture subsidies and domestic food aid.

Farm-state lawmakers' efforts to pass that bill failed in the last congress.

Vilsack spent much of his first term working to revitalize rural America.
