JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Missouri Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee has endorsed Jason Smith for re-election in Missouri’s 8th Congressional District. Trustees of the Missouri Farm Bureau Southeast Regional Endorsement Committee voted to endorse his re-election bid.
Smith is serving his fourth term in Congress and is 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 three completed terms.
“Congressman Smith has been an unwavering friend of Missouri’s farmers and ranchers,” said Jinks Wynn, 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 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 fifth consecutive election in which Missouri Farm Bureau has endorsed Smith.
