Farm Bureau PAC endorses Young for the 8th Congressional District
Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT, the political action committee of Indiana Farm Bureau, has endorsed Rep. Todd Young in the primary race for Indiana’s 9th Congressional District.
The 9th District encompasses all or parts of Johnson, Morgan, Monroe, Brown, Jackson, Scott, Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Crawford, Orange and Lawrence counties. Because Indiana Farm Bureau’s PAC is grassroots-driven, it is more complicated than most. With the ELECT endorsement, candidates have made it through the multi-step process to gain the organization’s support
According to Megan Ritter, Indiana Farm Bureau director of public policy, the primary endorsement of Todd Young by IFB ELECT is recognition of his support of policy priorities for agriculture, farm families and rural Indiana.
“Agriculture is an important economic driver in the 9th Congressional District,” said Ritter. “Congressman Young understands agriculture’s role in improving the economy, creating jobs and producing a safe, diverse and affordable food supply.”
Young, a Republican, was first elected to Congress in 2011. Prior to that, he served in the U.S. Marine Corps and practiced law in Orange County.
