Here’s everyone the Alabama Farmers Federation has endorsed for the 2018 midterm elections


Alabama farmers are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to elections.

Contributing $5 billion to the state’s agricultural industry, and operating on nearly nine million acres of land within the state; an endorsement from the political arm of the Alabama Farmers Federation, the Farm PAC, can carry major weight in an election cycle.

Founded in 1921, the federation has grown to more than 360,000 members; the group focuses its attention on  sending a powerful message, to the Statehouse in Montgomery and Capitol Hill in Washington.
