BREAKING: Delegate Gilbert Endorsed by AgPAC
Delegate Todd Gilbert, R-Shenandoah,
this week 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 15th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.
“I’m proud to be endorsed by the Farm Bureau Federation’s AgPAC. Farming and farmers are the heart of the Shenandoah Valley," Gilbert said. "You can’t represent our area unless you understand their issues, and I’m proud to have been a champion for agriculture during my time in Richmond. With your support, I will continue that fight for the things that matter here in the valley.”
Delegate Gilbert is among 126 candidates that Virginia VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for House and Senate 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 2020 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.
