DES MOINES, Iowa -- Ted Cruz decided six months was enough.
The Texas senator, who has proven not to be a big fan of Iowa's ethanol, finally stopped delaying the U.S. Senate vote so that Bill Northey could take his position with the USDA. That meant a promotion for Iowa's deputy agriculture secretary.
Mike Naig is now Northey's successor at the Department of Agriculture. He sat down to discuss the change with Political Director Dave Price.
