JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Missouri Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee has endorsed Congressman Sam Graves for re-election in Missouri’s sixth Congressional District. Trustees of the Missouri Farm Bureau Northern Regional Endorsement Committee voted to endorse his re-election bid.
Graves is serving his 11th term in Congress. He serves as Ranking Member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and is also a member of the House Armed Services Committee. He has received the prestigious Friend of Farm Bureau Award from the American Farm Bureau Federation for each of his ten completed terms.
“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 – particularly transportation issues and issues facing farmers and ranchers. We know Sam fights for us on a daily basis and are very proud to support his re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.”
Trustees are selected by their county Farm Bureau organizations. They review the candidate’s voting record and positions on relevant issues prior to voting on endorsements. This is the 12th consecutive election in which Missouri Farm Bureau has endorsed Graves.
