Missouri Farm Bureau issued the following announcement on Sept. 12.
Missouri Farm Bureau’s State Political Action Committee Trustees have voted unanimously to endorse Governor Mike Parson for reelection. As a lifelong farmer, Governor Parson has been a leader in Missouri agriculture since his earliest days in public office, and his leadership has continued through his first term as Governor.
“Governor Parson knows what it’s like to live and farm in rural Missouri, because he’s done it his whole life,” said Trent Drake, Chairman of the Board of Trustees. “As a Senator he stood strong against well-funded out-of-state interests as the primary champion of Missouri’s Right to Farm Amendment. He has strongly advocated for rural Missouri during his time as Governor and will continue to support rural priorities like broadband internet, improved roads and bridges, and strong rural schools. We are proud to support him in this race.”
Trustees of the Missouri Farm Bureau Federation State Political Action Committee are selected by their county Farm Bureau organizations. They review candidates’ voting records and seek their positions on issues prior to voting on endorsements.
