Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT, the political action committee of Indiana Farm Bureau, has announced its endorsement of U.S. Rep. Pete Visclosky, D-1st.

“ELECT is a non-partisan political organization that supports candidates who are evaluated for their commitment to agriculture and rural issues,” ELECT said in a statement released on Thursday. “Endorsement by ELECT is driven by a multi-part, grassroots process that requires a high threshold of support by each entity involved.”

“As a Lake County farmer and chair of ELECT for Congressional District 1, I am proud to support Congressman Visclosky,” Nick Zandstra said. “His endorsement by Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT is a testament to his commitment to agriculture and rural issues.”

“We are pleased to endorse Congressman Visclosky for the U.S. House of Representatives,” said Megan Ritter, director of public policy for Indiana Farm Bureau.

“Indiana Farm Bureau ELECT is the non-partisan political action committee of Indiana Farm Bureau,” ELECT said. “Contributions to ELECT are made individually by members. No membership dues are used to support candidates.”
