April 18, 2016 – Congresswoman Jackie Walorski announced that she has been endorsed by the Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT PAC, the nonpartisan political action committee associated with Indiana Farm Bureau, for the 2016 May primary.
ELECT endorsements are made through a multi-step grassroots process, starting with recommendations from Farm Bureau members who live in the district.
“We are pleased to endorse Jackie Walorski for Indiana’s second congressional district,” said Megan Ritter, director of public policy for Indiana Farm Bureau. “ELECT’s primary endorsement of Jackie Walorski is recognition of her support of policies that will foster a positive environment for agriculture and rural communities across the state.”
“Jackie Walorski understands that Indiana’s producers of food, fuel and fiber are the backbone of our state’s economy,” said Ritter. “We look forward to working with her in the 115th United States Congress.”
Walorski said, “Since my first day in Congress, I’ve been honored to have the opportunity to visit farmers across the Second District, sit at their dining room tables and tour their farms, to learn how I can best represent agriculture in Congress. It has been a privilege to be the only Hoosier to serve on the House Committee on Agriculture where I’ve had the opportunity to fight against excessive EPA regulations, protect crop insurance, and support important trade legislation that will open doors for economic growth in agriculture. I’m grateful to the Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT PAC for their endorsement.”
