Here’s everyone the Alabama Farmers Federation has endorsed in the 2018 election cycle

0

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.

“The opportunity to vote is among Americans’ most valued rights and most important civic duties. Each election cycle, county Farmers Federation leaders interview candidates and recommend endorsements,” said the federation. “We encourage you to study the positions of all candidates and vote your convictions. Please exercise your right to vote in the Democratic or Republican primary Tuesday, June 5.”

Here are the candidates who Farm PAC (the political arm of the ALFA) has endorsed who they believe have the best pro-farm record and attitude:
