Candidate Tommy Wright, Jr. received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) AgPAC, a political action committee of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in the race for the 61st District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

“I appreciate the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF), AgPAC and the contribution our farm community makes to the Commonwealth. I currently serve as Chairman of the State Water Commission and am a member of the Agriculture, Chesapeake, and Natural Resources Committee which gives me the opportunity to have input on issues involving agri-business and other farm related items” said Del. Wright.

Del. Wright is among 126 candidates that Virginia VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for House and Senate seats. Endorsements were made based on the recommendations of local committees of farmers.

“Each of these candidates has 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. We believe these candidates will help agriculture and forestry maintain its vitality as the No. 1 industry in Virginia,” said Wayne F. Pryor, chairman of VFBF AgPAC and VFBF president. “We look forward to working with them in the 2020 Virginia General Assembly.
