Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC endorses Delegate James Edmunds for House seat
Delegate James Edmunds has received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) AgPAC, a political action committee of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in the race for the 60th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.
"I am once again humbled to accept this endorsement by my peers" exclaimed Delegate Edmunds when notified of his endorsement for the fifth straight campaign. "As a "hands-on" farmer myself, I am fully aware of the challenges farmers face on a daily basis and I know that those challenges are only going to continue to increase. I am honored to be in a position to help with those added pressures. The information provided to me by Virginia Farm Bureau representatives during General Assembly session is invaluable when making informed decisions that will support the agricultural and forestry industries in Virginia," stated Mr. Edmunds.
Delegate Edmunds is among 94 candidates that Virginia VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for House seats. Endorsements were made based on the recommendations of local committees of farmers.
"Each of these candidates has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs and challenges farmers are facing and/or have proven their support through their favorable voting records while holding positions in the General Assembly. We believe these candidates will help agriculture and forestry maintain its vitality as the number one industry in Virginia," said Wayne F. Pryor, chairman of VFBF AgPAC and VFBF president. "We look forward to working with them in the 2018 Virginia General Assembly."
The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues. A full list of candidates endorsed by the committee can be viewed online at vafb.com.
