Politics and Farming

In the fall many states hold election primaries to decide who will be running for elected office in the BIG election this November.  Primaries are where all the candidates are listed on the ballot and the people choose one from each party.  The November election is where those parties run against each other.

In Missouri we held our primary elections in the beginning of August.  Just after that Farm Bureau met for FARM-PAC, or Political Action Committees.  Farm Bureau looks at the candidates from each party to choose who to support, or endorse.  We spent all day last Friday in Jefferson City listening to the candidates and making our choices we think will be best for the farmers of Missouri.

Do you know who is running for office in your state?  A simple internet search will help you figure out who is running for office in your district.  Now search again.  What do those candidates stand for?  What will they fight for?  Who do you agree with?
