SEDALIA, Mo. – On August 15, 2018, Missouri Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee endorsed Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler for re-election in Missouri’s Fourth Congressional District. Trustees of the Missouri Farm Bureau West Central Regional Endorsement Committee interviewed Hartzler in Sedalia and voted unanimously to endorse her re-election bid.
Hartzler is serving her fourth term in Congress and is a member of the House Agriculture and House Armed Services Committees. She currently serves as the only Missourian on the House Agriculture Committee and has received the Friend of Farm Bureau award each of her three completed terms.
“Congresswoman Hartzler is one of the few remaining active farmers in Congress and has been a staunch supporter of farmers during her time representing us in Congress,” said Dennis Feezor, chairman of the West Central Regional Endorsement Committee. “As a long-time member and former president of the Cass County Farm Bureau, she understands what Farm Bureau members believe in and takes that message directly to Washington every day.”
Trustees are selected by their county Farm Bureau organizations. They interview candidates, review voting records and seek their positions on issues prior to voting on endorsements. This is the fifth consecutive election in which Missouri Farm Bureau has endorsed Hartzler.
