JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee has endorsed Jason Smith for re-election in Missouri’s Eighth Congressional District. Trustees of the Missouri Farm Bureau Southeast Regional Endorsement Committee voted to endorse his re-election bid.
Smith is serving his fifth full term in Congress. He is the Ranking Member of the House Budget Committee and a member of the House Ways and Means Committee. He has received the prestigious Friend of Farm Bureau Award from the American Farm Bureau Federation for each of his four completed terms.
“Congressman Smith has been an unwavering friend of Missouri’s farmers and ranchers,” said Vinnie Clubb, chairman of the Southeast Regional Endorsement Committee. “As a farmer himself, he understands the needs of our members and all rural Missourians. We appreciate his work in Congress and look forward to electing him to a fifth full term.”
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 sixth consecutive election in which Missouri Farm Bureau has endorsed Smith.
Missouri Farm Bureau is the state’s largest agriculture advocacy organization.
