The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation PAC has endorsed U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar for re-election to the Senate. The Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation includes 78 county Farm Bureaus and nearly 30,000 members across the state. The organization highlighted Klobuchar's work fighting on behalf of Minnesota farmers.
Klobuchar is a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee and has been a leader on agriculture and rural issues since coming to the Senate. assistance.
Klobuchar recently helped pass the bipartisan 2012 Farm Bill in the Senate by a vote of 64-35. The 5-year bill would reduce the deficit by $23 billion, keep a strong safety net in place for farmers, maintain the sugar program, and strengthen the dairy program.
The bill has stalled in the House.
Klobuchar was also endorsed by the Minnesota Farmers Union earlier this month at Farmfest......
