Sturtevant Endorsed by VA Farm Bureau Federation for Virginia Senate
CHESTERFIELD, VA - Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's (VFBF) AgPAC, the organization's political action committee, has endorsed Glen Sturtevant in the race for Virginia's 10th District Senate seat. Sturtevant values and understands the importance of agriculture to growing our overall economy in Virginia.
Speaking about the endorsement, Sturtevant said, "I am honored to receive the Virginia Farm Bureau's endorsement. Agriculture and forestry is Virginia's largest industry, with billions in total economic impact and more than 400,000 jobs across the Commonwealth." Sturtevant continued, "In the Senate, my focus will be supporting policies that foster economic growth in Virginia, including in the Agriculture industry. We have had four years of GDP growth below one percent in Virginia, including zero percent GDP growth last year, and I know we can do a lot better."
Endorsements by VFBF are based on the recommendation of local committees and farmers. The 10th District is home to over 200 farms encompassing more than 30,000 acres of farm land. Wayne F. Pryor, chairman of the VFBF AgPAC and president of the Virginia Farm Bureau said, "We believe the endorsed candidates will help agriculture and forestry maintain its vitality as the No. 1 industry in Virginia."
The VFBF AgPAC is a non-partisan political action committee, created by the Farm Bureau in 1999, that employs in-kind contributions and endorsements to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues. You can find the full list of endorsements by clicking here.
