Sen. Jeff Bingaman (D-NM)
On Gov. Kempthorne's Nomination
To Be Secretary of the Interior 
"Dirk Kempthorne is well known and respected by those of us in the Senate who served with him.  As a Westerner, former senator and current governor, he certainly understands the issues managed by the Interior Department.  I would expect that Dirk will be confirmed."
