09/12/12 Republican Congressional Candidate Jackie Walorski   (IN-02) was formally endorsed today by the Indiana Farm Bureau’s political   action committee, Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT.“It is a privilege to be endorsed by Indiana’s farmers,” said   Walorski.  “Agriculture is the cornerstone of the Hoosier state’s   economy, and with all 92 counties recently declared primary natural disaster   areas it is imperative that Congress protect family farms at the federal   level.”

The Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT formally presented Walorski with   her endorsement during a monthly meeting at McClure’s Orchard in Peru.   Walorski spoke with bureau members representing second district counties to   hear more about their priorities for Indiana agriculture.

Candidates are selected based on their viability and   electability.  Endorsement criteria also include the candidate’s support   and understanding for Farm Bureaus, farmers, agriculture, and rural   issues.  The ELECT PAC meet to review the platform of both candidates before voting.
