WASHINGTON, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack say they intend to remain for U.S. President Obama's second term.

Napolitano had planned to stay and the administration confirmed her decision Monday while Vilsack issued a statement on his intentions, The Washington Post reported.

"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," Vilsack said in his statement issued Monday.

Vilsack, a former governor of Iowa and Obama's chief representative to rural Americans, could play a key role as the administration begins its campaign to modify gun laws, the Post said.

Napolitano, a former governor of Arizona, could play an important role in Obama's drive for immigration reform legislation, which the administration has said is a top priority.
