Nebraska Farm Bureau Endorses Don Bacon for Re-election

LINCOLN, NEB. – U.S. Rep. Don Bacon has been endorsed by the Nebraska Farm Bureau Political Action Committee (NEFB-PAC). Rep. Bacon received the endorsement based on a long-track record of support for Nebraska farm and ranch families, according to Nebraska Farm Bureau (NEFB) President Mark McHargue. Rep. Bacon is seeking re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District.

“Rep. Bacon has repeatedly shown his understanding of the significance of agriculture to our state’s economy. Despite representing a large mostly urban district, he has made consistent efforts to serve all his constituents as well as the farm and ranch families who live across Nebraska,” said McHargue.

Rep. Bacon, as a member of the House Agriculture Committee, remains committed to advocating for the priorities of the NEFB. These priorities include safeguarding a robust crop insurance system and expanding global markets for agricultural products from Nebraska. He has also been a leader in helping develop the next Farm Bill.

Rep Bacon has also supported legislation to provide needed funding for roads, bridges, locks and dams. Additionally, it included $405 million in rural broadband funding for Nebraska, and introduced a noteworthy regulatory change in the Hours of Service for livestock and insect haulers.

“We are fortunate to have Rep. Bacon working in Washington, D.C. and we thank him not only for supporting farm and ranch families, but for helping give them a voice on key issues. We are pleased to again endorse him as he seeks re-election to represent the 2nd District,” said McHargue.

Rep. Bacon earned the NEFB-PAC endorsement based on results of NEFB’s grassroots selection process, which involves gathering input from local County Farm Bureaus across the state.

The Nebraska Farm Bureau is a grassroots, state-wide organization dedicated to supporting farm and ranch families and working for the benefit of all Nebraskans through a wide variety of educational, service, and advocacy efforts. More than 55,000 families across Nebraska are Farm Bureau members, working together to achieve rural and urban prosperity as agriculture is a key fuel to Nebraska’s economy.
