The Iowa Farm Bureau Political Action Committee (PAC), has designated Sen. Joni Ernst as a "Friend of Agriculture" for the 2020 general election.

Guided by grassroots input from every county in the state, Ernst was selected based on her support of Farm Bureau policies, voting record and support of Iowa’s farm families and agricultural economy. Ernst has supported Farm Bureau policies that promote job creation and the economy in both Iowa’s urban centers and rural communities.

“Candidates earn the Friend of Agriculture designation by supporting issues that directly impact Iowa’s agricultural ec­­onomy,” said Erik Oberbroeckling, a Clayton County farmer and IFBF PAC chair. “With one in every five Iowans employed in agriculture and ag-related industries, it is essential to have strong advocates for agriculture representing Iowa."
