Farm Bureau's PAC Backs Ballweg for State Senate
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 07/29/2020
The political action arm of the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is endorsing Rep. Joan Ballweg of Markesan in her bid for the state's 14th Senate district.
The Volunteers for Agriculture Committee says Ballweg, who's running as a Republican, has a track record as a member of the Assembly in partnering with farmers to protect water, promote land stewardship and to be a strong advocate for Wisconsin's rural
communities. She has also been a supporter of improving roads, bridges and rural broadband access.
Ballweg is facing Ken Van Dyke on August 11 for the Republican spot on the November ballot. The winner will face Democrat Joni Anderson for a seat being vacated by longtime Sen. Luther Olsen.
The 14th Senate District consists of Green Lake and Marquette counties along with portions of Adams, Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Waushara and Waupaca counties.
