The political action committee of the Alabama Farmers Federation (Farm-PAC) announced its endorsements of candidates last month for the Democratic and Republican primaries. In making its announcement, Farm-PAC said in a news release that its philosophy is to support candidates “with moral character who will fight for accountability, fairness, security and opportunity.”. The committee endorsed: U.S. Senator: Richard Shelby; U.S. Representative, District 1: Jo Bonner; U.S. Representative, District 2: Bobby Bright; U.S. Representative, District 3: Mike Rogers; U.S. Representative, District 4: Robert Aderholt; U.S. Representative, District 6: Spencer Bachus; U.S. Representative, District 7: Earl Hilliard Jr.; Attorney General: Troy King; State Treasurer: George Wallace Jr.; Commissioner of Agriculture & Industries: Dorman Grace; for Justices on the Alabama Supreme Court: Place 1: Kelli Wise; Place 2: Mike Bolin; Place 3: Tom Parker; and Court of Civil Appeals Judge: Tommy Bryan.
Farm-PAC advisory trustees met at the federation headquarters in Montgomery, where several candidates seeking endorsements spoke before the committee. Alabama Farmers Federation President Jerry A. Newby had this to say in the association’s news release:
We are a non-partisan organization and have members who have sought our recommendations in both primaries. We hope our endorsements will be of assistance to our members if they are not familiar with the candidates.
All candidates, as a rule, work hard to get the endorsement of this politically powerful organization. Interestingly, no endorsements were made for either Governor or Lt. Governor. I guess those will come later.
