Farm Bureau endorses Huelskamp

A huge endorsement today from the Kansas Farm Bureau in support of Republican Tim Huelskamp.
“More than ever before, farmers, ranchers and rural Kansans need a strong voice in Washington,” said Kansas Farm Bureau President Steve Baccus, a grain farmer from Ottawa County. “Tim Huelskamp understands our challenges and we look forward to helping elect him to the U.S. House."
Huelskamp correctly noted that this endorsement is critical to anyone who wants to represent the First District, which is heavily dependent on agriculture.
“Our district is heavily dependent on agriculture, and as a farmer, I understand the unique challenges we face in this industry,” said Huelskamp. “Having the support of Kansas’ farmers and ranchers is critical to representing this district the right way.”
Today's endorsement makes it even harder for Alan Jilka, the Democratic candidate, to win in November.

The Kansas Farm Bureau is the leader in Kansas agriculture and clearly Huelskamp's stance on the issues and his life long livelihood (farming) were all key to winning today's endorsement.

Congratulations to the Huelskamp campaign. I'm sure this is just a sign of even larger things to come.
