U.S. Senator John McCain's presidential campaign today unveiled the national advisory committee on agriculture that will be working to engage and enlist voters across the country in support of the Arizona Senator. This influential leadership team will continue to build on Senator McCain's volunteer grassroots organization.
"Senator McCain has been a strong leader who will do what's right for America's farmers and agriculture producers," said New Hampshire Farm Bureau President Wayne Mann. "His experience and courageous life story have prepared him to lead this country on day one, and his sound national farm policy will help strengthen our nation's economy."
Ralph Klemme, the former Chairman of the Iowa House Agriculture Committee noted, "I'm pleased to serve on Senator McCain's advisory team and admire his principled stance against farm policy riddled with waste. We need a president who understands that pet projects benefiting only a few are harmful to the farming and agriculture industry as a whole."
Senator John McCain said, "Farming and agriculture production is part of the backbone of our great country. As president, I will support addressing the larger needs of the farming community abiding by the same standards of common sense and fiscal restraint as demonstrated by our nation's hardworking families." McCain added, "My national advisory team will play a critical role in developing farm and agriculture policy as we continue to build support for my campaign across the country."
