SAINT LOUIS, MO – Today Republican Gubernatorial nominee Dave Spence released the following statement after receiving the endorsement of the Missouri Farm Bureau’s Regional Farm-PACs:
“I was so honored to receive the Missouri Farm Bureau’s endorsement this afternoon. Missouri’s agriculture industry is vital to our state. It is the largest sector of our economy accounting for $14 billion annually. Throughout my visits to all 114 Missouri counties, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with farm families in every corner of the state. The message I received loud and clear is we need to remove burdensome regulations, let the free market work, and create an environment where all of Missouri’s businesses can thrive. This is Missouri’s most sought after endorsement because Farm Bureau is such an excellent organization working on behalf of so many Missouri families.”
Missouri Farm Bureau is the largest agriculture group in Missouri. With offices in each county, Missouri Farm Bureau is the most effective agriculture organization working to improve the lives of Missouri’s farmers, ranchers and all Missourians. The Missouri Farm Bureau is the #1 organization with a positive influence on public opinion according to independent surveys.
