| 09/12/12 Republican Congressional Candidate Jackie Walorski (IN-02) was formally endorsed today by the Indiana Farm Bureau’s political action committee, Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT.“It is a privilege to be endorsed by Indiana’s farmers,” said Walorski. “Agriculture is the cornerstone of the Hoosier state’s economy, and with all 92 counties recently declared primary natural disaster areas it is imperative that Congress protect family farms at the federal level.”
The Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT formally presented Walorski with her endorsement during a monthly meeting at McClure’s Orchard in Peru. Walorski spoke with bureau members representing second district counties to hear more about their priorities for Indiana agriculture.
Candidates are selected based on their viability and electability. Endorsement criteria also include the candidate’s support and understanding for Farm Bureaus, farmers, agriculture, and rural issues. The ELECT PAC meet to review the platform of both candidates before voting.
