Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s Board of Directors have endorsed Senator Ron Johnson for re-election to the United States Senate.
“Sen. Johnson has been a steadfast supporter of Wisconsin agriculture,” said Wisconsin Farm Bureau Vice President Dave Daniels. “He has played a critical role in the U.S. Senate, supporting policies that expand rural broadband access, clarify food labels for consumers, enhance trade opportunities and many other policies that benefit Wisconsin’s agricultural economy.”
Sen. Johnson, who assumed office in January 2011, is seeking a third term. The general election will take place November 8.
During his terms, Sen. Johnson has supported Wisconsin agriculture by voting in favor of S. 3580, The Ocean Shipping Reform Act, which will increase agricultural exports at a time when our trading partners need U.S. agricultural products more than ever. Sen. Johnson also introduced S. 3738 which would remove the gray wolf from the Endangered Species List and S. 1669, The CURD Act, which would formalize the definition of natural cheese to ensure consumers are fully informed when purchasing cheese. Sen. Johnson has also been a champion for trade with his support of free trade agreements, including the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA).
“Wisconsin Farm Bureau looks forward to continuing to work with Sen. Johnson as he continues to be an advocate for Wisconsin agriculture in the United States Senate,” added Daniels.
