WASHINGTON, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said Monday he is staying on in the post in President Obama's second term.

The former Iowa governor said he is pleased to continue working with Obama "to grow more opportunity in rural America."

"President Obama and I share a deep appreciation for rural America and its unlimited potential in the years ahead to feed a growing world population, revolutionize America's energy, further protect our natural resources and create more jobs here at home," Vilsack said in a statement.

"We will continue to urge Congress to pass a food, farm and jobs bill that will help us continue USDA's wide range of efforts to support this work."
