U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar received support Friday from the Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation Political Action Committee.

The Republican-leaning organization endorsed Democrat Klobuchar over GOP challenger state Rep. Kurt Bills of Rosemount.

"Sen. Klobuchar is a strong and effective advocate for Minnesota farmers," said Minnesota Farm Bureau Federation PAC Chairman Randy Kramer. "She understands the issues facing farmers and has shown a rare ability to work across the aisle to stand up and do what is right for our state."

The Farm Bureau has 78 county organizations and nearly 30,000 members across the state.

Like the Democratic-leaning Farmers Union, the Farm Bureau praised Klobuchar for working to develop new federal farm law.

Normally, farm legislation is among the least political issues in the federal government and Klobuchar in her campaign often has mentioned her work with Republicans on farm and other legislation.

"As a member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, it's my job to look out for Minnesota farmers and our rural economy," Klobuchar said.
