JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – – Missouri Farm Bureau’s State Political Action Committee has voted to endorse Ben Brown for election to the open seat in Missouri’s 26th State Senate District. 

A resident and small business owner from Washington, Missouri, Brown is looking to fill the seat of Senator Dave Schatz, who is term-limited. The 26th State Senate District covers four counties in east central Missouri: Franklin, Gasconade, Osage and Warren.

“Ben showed everyone what he stood for when he fought back as a private citizen against government overreach during the COVID pandemic,” said James Koepke, chairman of the East Central Regional Endorsement Committee. “He is an advocate for the reinforcement of property rights, and he has been a leader in pushing back against unnecessary and burdensome regulations.”
