President Bush has nominated Idaho governor Dirk Kempthorne to lead Interior, according to New West. They write, "The AP reported Sen. Larry Craig of Idaho told reporters, 'I have known and worked with Dirk for many years. He is talented, energetic, and understands the issues that surround public lands and endangered species.'

"The Sierra Club has already released a statement saying the nomination 'raises serious concerns,' for the environment. 'President Bush nominated someone who has consistently opposed protecting public health and public lands,' Carl Pope, the Executive Director of the Sierra Club wrote in the release.

"Kempthorne, who started his career as the mayor of Boise, was elected governor of Idaho in 1998 and re-elected in 2002. Before that, he spent six years as Idaho's senator in Washington D.C."
