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.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) Political Victory Fund has announced its endorsement of James E. Edmunds III for the 60th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

He further stated, "Your "A" rating is based upon your exemplary service as a member of the Virginia House of Delegates and your firm pledge to support and uphold the Second Amendment rights of Virginia's citizens. I look forward to continuing to work with Mr. Edmunds to advance the interests of Virginia's law-abiding firearm owners and sportsmen."
In the last two elections, James Edmunds has had no competition. In this election, James Edmunds has an opponent but still has no competition.
Halifax County (and other areas in the 60th District) has been adequately represented in the Virginia House of Delegates by James Edmunds for the past four years. He's had bipartisan support and is very popular in the district. His challenger this year is Farmville's Jasper Hendricks, who has gotten his scant name recognition by getting arrested for drunk driving. As we said before in our updates, Edmunds never was seriously threatened by Hendricks in this campaign and we declared the race "SAFE – Edmunds" even before Hendricks had his Law & Order experience.
The National Federation of Independent Business, Virginia's leading small-business association, has endorsed James Edmunds in the 60th House District race.
The endorsement was made by NFIB/Virginia SAFE (Save America's Free Enterprise) Trust, which is comprised exclusively of NFIB members.
"James Edmunds clearly understands the challenges facing Virginia's job creators," said Nicole Riley, state director of NFIB/Virginia. "Our members believe Delegate Edmunds will continue to take a fiscally responsible approach to managing state government and support legislation that helps our small businesses grow and create jobs."
