Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC has announced its endorsement of Del. A. Benton “Ben” Chafin Jr., R-Lebanon, in the special election for the Virginia Senate’s 38th District seat.
Candidates who receive VFBF AgPAC endorsements “have demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs and challenges farmers are facing and/or have proven their support through their favorable voting records while holding positions in the General Assembly,” said Wayne F. Pryor, chairman of VFBF AgPAC and president of Virginia Farm Bureau. “We believe candidates such as Del. Chafin will help agriculture and forestry maintain its vitality as the No. 1 industry in Virginia.”
The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues.
