JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – – Missouri Farm Bureau’s State Political Action Committee has voted to endorse Curtis Trent for election to the open seat in Missouri’s 20th State Senate District.

Trent, who at present serves the 133rd District in the Missouri House of Representatives, has represented southwest Greene County since November of 2016. He is chairman of the General Laws committee and also sits on the Special Committee on Litigation Reform, the Economic Development committee and the Financial Institutions committee.

“Curtis is a proven leader with an agricultural background, having grown up on a family farm in Douglas County,” said Lane Baxter, chairman of the Southwest Regional Endorsement Committee. “He understands the inherent values of farm and ranch families, and we are proud to not only support him as he moves into the Missouri Senate but also work with him on issues important to Missouri Farm Bureau members.”

Currently held by Eric Burlison, a Missouri Farm Bureau endorsed candidate running for the state’s seventh U.S. Congressional House District, the 20th State Senate District covers all of Barton, Dade and Webster counties, as well as much of Greene County.
