(Indianapolis) – Sept. 16, 2020 – Indiana Farm Bureau’s political action committees, ELECT and AgELECT– the organization’s federal and state-level, nonpartisan political action committees – has endorsed 93 candidates for the 2020 General Election.
“Indiana Farm Bureau endorsements are an important piece of the organization’s grassroots effort,” said Andy Tauer, INFB’s director of public policy. “The goal of our PACs is to back candidates who are willing to listen to issues impacting agriculture. INFB’s advocacy efforts rely on supporting public officials who will advocate on behalf of Hoosier agriculture and serve as the voice at the Statehouse and in Washington D.C.”
