JEFFERSON CITY, MO – Missouri Farm Bureau’s St. Louis Regional Endorsement Committee has endorsed Congresswoman Ann Wagner for re-election in Missouri’s Second Congressional District. Trustees interviewed Wagner at the Stemme Farm in Maryland Heights on September 18 and voted unanimously to endorse her re-election bid.
Now in her third term, Wagner has served in Congress since 2013. She is a member of the House Committee on Financial Services.
Following the endorsement, Wagner said “Agriculture is the top economic driver in the State of Missouri and I am honored to have the endorsement of the Missouri Farm Bureau. In Washington, I will continue to promote free and fair trade, advocate for Missouri's hardworking farmers and push back against burdensome regulations that hinder agribusiness throughout the Midwest.”
Denny Mertz, a trustee of the St. Louis Regional Endorsement Committee, said, “Over the past six years Congresswoman Wagner has proven that she is committed to farmers in the St. Louis area. She has consistently supported the issues that matter to the farming community and has been a friend to agriculture.”
PAC trustees on Regional Endorsement Committees are selected by their county Farm Bureau organizations. The trustees interview candidates, review voting records and written questionnaires and seek their positions on issues.
