The Alabama Farmers Federation’s political action committee, FarmPAC, announced endorsements for the March 2020 primary elections.
More than 100 Federation leaders including representatives from all 67 counties gathered in Montgomery Sept. 24 to hear from candidates and make recommendations.
Federation President Jimmy Parnell said the meeting is among the most important held by the state’s largest farm organization.
“The Alabama Farmers Federation was founded to give farmers a voice in the political process and to advocate for issues important to rural families,” he said. “As representatives of rural communities across this state, these county leaders reflect the values, concerns and hopes of many Alabamians.”
Those endorsed were:
