Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller said Friday he is working with GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump’s campaign to help lead an agriculture team. 

In an interview with KFYO’s Chad Hasty, Miller described the effort, likely to be announced next week, as a “coalition” of others in the agriculture industry and said he will serve as a national co-chair, focused on Texas. 

“Of course my emphasis will be carrying Texas for the ag industry for Trump,” Miller told Hasty. “Personally I think Donald Trump will be great for agriculture.” 

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment. 

In the interview, Miller praised Trump’s record as a businessman and said he was the right candidate to negotiate trade deals and could increase exports. 

Asked if he would consider serving in a Trump administration, Miller was noncommittal. “I’d have to pray about it and think about it and certainly consider it,” he said in the interview. “But right now I’ve got the best job in the state of Texas.”
