CANDIDATES RECEIVE ALABAMA FARMERS FEDERATION ENDORSEMENT
MONTGOMERY, Ala., — FarmPAC, the political action committee of the Alabama Farmers Federation, today endorsed additional candidates for the 2014 elections.
FarmPAC endorsed John Merrill for secretary of state and Adam Thompson for state auditor. The group also made endorsements in two Public Service Commission races: Jeremy Oden for Place 1 and Chip Beeker for Place 2.
“The Alabama Farmers Federation encourages our members to be politically engaged and support candidates who understand the importance of agriculture to our state,” said Federation President Jimmy Parnell. “We hope our endorsements will help guide our members when they vote in June and November.”
FarmPAC Advisory Trustees, who are farmers representing every county in Alabama, made endorsement recommendations at the group’s Jan. 21 meeting at the Federation home office in Montgomery.
The group previously announced endorsements for other state and congressional races. That list is available online.
The 2014 primary election is June 3 with primary runoffs July 15. The general election is Nov. 4.
The Alabama Farmers Federation, an affiliate of the American Farm Bureau Federation, is the state’s largest farm organization with more than 365,000 members.
