The Iowa Farm Bureau has named a Republican state senate hopeful a “friend of agriculture.” Sandy Greiner of Keota is seeking the District 45 Senate seat in Southeast Iowa. Farm Bureau Political Action Committee Chair Mary Heintz says her organization’s members “are looking for candidates who truly recognize the value that agriculture and rural communities bring to (Iowa).” The effort to designate friends of ag is guided by Farm Bureau members and begins with county committees evaluating candidates. The bureau’s PAC then reviews those evaluations while also considering a candidate’s positions on issues important to agriculture as well as the candidate’s previous voting records.
