The article informs that Steve Troxler has been planting and tending the seeds of ag leadership all his life. He's made two runs at the top ag job in North Carolina and believes he's right to lead the state in its transition after the buyout. He had anticipated readying himself to be sworn in as North Carolina ag commissioner after leading the vote tally in the November election. But an election glitch involving about 4,000 lost votes in Carteret County, N.C, found him and his opponent readying for a January 11 election in one county, not the whole state.
