The Iowa Farm Bureau Political Action Committee (PAC), has designated Senator Chuck Grassley as a ‘Friend of Agriculture’ for the 2016 general election. Guided by grassroots input, Senator Grassley was selected based on his support of Farm Bureau policies, voting record, and support of Iowa’s farm families and agricultural economy. Senator Grassley 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 Audubon County farmer and IFBF PAC Chair, Randy Dreher. “With one in every five Iowans employed in agriculture and ag-related industries, it is essential to have strong advocates for agriculture representing Iowa. Senator Grassley has been a proven and reliable advocate for agriculture and that hasn’t changed throughout his time in the U.S. Senate.”
