Alabama FarmPAC, a political action committee of the Alabama Farmers Federation (ALFA), endorsed former President Donald Trump on Friday.

ALFA president Jimmy Parnell said the endorsement was recommended by county leaders throughout Alabama and unanimously approved by FarmPAC's executive trustees. 

"President Trump has a strong record of advancing policies to strengthen American agriculture," Parnell said. "His administration reduced burdensome regulations, held trade partners accountable, lowered energy costs and invested in rural economic development."

Trump will face incumbent President Joe Biden in the November 5 general election.

 "Today, farmers are facing skyrocketing costs, crippling government overreach and unfair foreign competition," Parnell said. "Some farmers may not survive another four years of the Biden administration. We must make a change in Washington if America is to continue enjoying safe, abundant and affordable food and fiber."
