Missouri Farm Bureau’s Political Action Committee has endorsed Blaine Luetkemeyer for re-election in Missouri’s Third Congressional District.

Trustees of the Missouri Farm Bureau East Central Regional Endorsement Committee voted to endorse his re-election bid.

Luetkemeyer is serving his sixth term in Congress, and is a member of the House Financial Services Committee and is the Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Financial Institutions. He has received the prestigious Friend of Farm Bureau Award from the American Farm Bureau Federation for each of his five completed terms.

“Blaine is a farmer, small business owner and lives in small-town Missouri,” said James Koepke, chairman of the East Central Regional Endorsement Committee. “He is one of us. It makes a real difference to have a congressman who cares about the same things our families care about and fights for the people of Missouri every day.

"We are very proud to support his re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives.”

Trustees are selected by their county Farm Bureau organizations. They review the candidate’s voting record and positions on relevant issues prior to voting on endorsements.

This is the seventh consecutive election in which Missouri Farm Bureau has endorsed Luetkemeyer.
