U.S. Secretary of Commerce tours Missoula store
She's ranked number 271 on the Forbes list of the 400 wealthiest Americans.
She's also a triathlete, heir to the Hyatt hotel fortune, has degrees from Stanford and Harvard, started several new businesses - and since June has been serving as President Obama's Secretary of Commerce. Last Friday, Secretary Penny Pritzker was in Missoula to meet with local business leaders as part of a national listening tour.
News Director Sally Mauk caught up with Pritzker at her first stop - the downtown Liquid Planet store, where owner Scott Billadeau was giving her a tour.
