MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- The political action committee of the Alabama Farmers Federation has announced its endorsements for the Nov. 2 General Election, a vote that President Jerry Newby has labeled "a very important election, which will set the direction of the state for years to come."

The endorsements, published in the current issues of the organization's monthly Neighbors and quarterly Friends & Family magazines, focus mainly on legislative and judicial races.

"Our philosophy is to support candidates with moral character who will fight for accountability, fairness, security and opportunity," Newby writes in the magazines, adding that the endorsements are made by an impartial, non-partisan group of the organization's leaders from all 67 counties.

"These endorsements are to assist you in making a decision," Newby wrote. "They are not meant in any way to tell you how to vote. Your vote is your personal and private right. We respect that. We hope you will be informed and that you will cast your vote based on the merits of each candidate."

Endorsements were not made in every race, but candidates that won the Federation's recommendation were:
