Texas Farm Bureau Friends of Agriculture Fund Endorses Governor Greg Abbott For Re-election

Texas Farm Bureau Friends of Agriculture Fund (TFB AGFUND), Inc. has endorsed Governor Greg Abbott for four more years as the Governor of Texas. Texas Farm Bureau is the state’s largest farm organization, and TFB AGFUND represents farmers and ranchers in the political process. Russell Boening, President of TFB and AGFUND, highlighted Governor Abbott’s commitment to agriculture in a video released by Texans for Greg Abbott. He said, in part, “Governor Abbott understands our needs and concerns and recognizes the important role our farmers and ranchers play in the Texas economy. The Texas Farm Bureau AGFUND endorses Governor Abbott because he will work to support the men and women who provide the food, fiber and fuel for the people of Texas.”

“Much of Texas’ economic success is due to the men and women of the agricultural industry, who contribute over $130 billion a year to our economy,” said Governor Abbott. “Their hard work and innovation produce the food on our tables and the fibers of our clothes. I am proud to receive the endorsement of the Texas Farm Bureau Friends of Agriculture Fund, and I am eager to continue working alongside them for four more years to further strengthen the agricultural industry.”
