Hull, Iowa – September 9, 2020 – The Iowa Farm Bureau Political Action Committee (PAC), has designated Randy Feenstra, candidate for Iowa’s Fourth Congressional District, as a ‘Friend of Agriculture’ for the 2020 general election.
Guided by grassroots input from every county in the district, Feenstra was selected based on his support of Farm Bureau policies, voting record, and support of Iowa’s farm families and agricultural economy. Feenstra 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.”
“I am truly honored to earn the endorsement of the farm families of the Iowa Farm Bureau,” Feenstra said. “In the Iowa Senate, I’ve led on numerous efforts to protect the RFS and reduce taxes, regulations and litigation that hurt our farmers. In Congress, I’ll continue standing shoulder to shoulder with our farmers to deliver trade deals, tax reductions and regulatory reforms that allow our farmers to feed and fuel our country. I’ll also fight to stop job-killing environmentalist schemes like the Green New Deal that will raise taxes and utility bills for our farmers and our families.”
