HULL, Iowa – State Senator Randy Feenstra, a Republican nominee for Congress in Iowa’s 4th Congressional District race, on Wednesday launched the Feenstra Farm Team, a coalition of supporters representing all sectors of Iowa’s agriculture industry representing all 39 counties in the district.
The coalition is made up of over 225 farmers, implement dealers & manufacturers, agriculture students, seed suppliers, and other agriculture ambassadors. The Honorary Chair of the Feenstra Farm Team is U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley.
“As a lifelong family farmer, I know the hard work it takes to feed and fuel the world. Agriculture is the lifeblood of our state, especially the Fourth District. The pandemic shows how crucial it is to have a chorus of strong voices representing Iowa agriculture in Washington. Randy Feenstra will be an outspoken voice for Iowa farmers in the U.S. House of Representatives, Grassley said. “Senator Feenstra has been a tireless champion for agriculture in the Iowa Senate where he cut the grain bin tax and provided assistance to first-time farmers. I trust that Randy will work hard for us in Congress. I’m honored to serve as the Honorary Chair of the Feenstra Farm Team with more than 225 Iowa agriculture leaders who agree that Feenstra Delivers.”
Feenstra echoed Grassley’s comment.
“The foundation of the Fourth District is agriculture – it is the cornerstone of our state’s economy, and the heart of countless communities. Assuring that agriculture thrives in the District is pivotal to assuring the District thrives as a whole. These folks need effective representation, and I know that the team we have assembled can help me better serve them as a Representative,” he said.
“When it comes to the Fourth District’s next Congressman, there is a stark difference regarding agriculture. I have years of experience working with and delivering for Iowa’s ag community, and my opponent only has words – as well as a history of supporting the ‘Green New Deal’, a policy agenda that would kneecap our farmers, our state, and destroy Iowa Agriculture,” Feenstra concluded.
