JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Missouri Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee has endorsed Congressman Sam Graves for re-election in Missouri’s 6th Congressional District. Trustees of the Missouri Farm Bureau Northern Regional Endorsement Committee voted to endorse his re-election bid.
Graves is serving his 10th term in Congress and is a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he serves as Ranking Member, as well as the House Armed Services Committee.

“Congressman Graves continues to represent our interests extremely well,” said Darrell Aldrich, chairman of the Northern Regional Endorsement Committee. “He is an effective leader on issues that are important to so many in northern Missouri. He understands the issues facing farmers and works hard to strengthen our rural communities.
