I know first-hand that agriculture is very important to Indiana. Nearly the entire family of my wife, Rebecca (Harker), is involved with swine, cattle, dairy, or crop farming within the district. Farming families work hard and I understand that a farmer's job is not nine-to-five. Indiana's farmers are an important part of our economy and I am excited about the state's renewed focus on agriculture. I will aggressively promote the growth and investment in our agriculture community and seek to expand the opportunities afforded to our farmers.
