Newhouse is the best choice for farmers

Print Article

I donít often write nor endorse, but ask that your readers consider supporting Congressman Dan Newhouse for another term in the U.S. House.

I find it invaluable to have a genuine agricultural producer in the Congress, as well as an experienced and skilled legislator. Agriculture is the backbone of the economy in the 4th Congressional District, and too often, farmers are overlooked in political decisions. In these divisive times, I look for honorable people who can reach across the political spectrum and get things done.

Dan Newhouse has exemplified these skills as a rising star in his party, and as a former Washington Director of Agriculture (for a Democratic governor, no less), always carrying out what is best for his state, district, and constituents.

I have had the honor of working with the Congressman while serving as President of the National Association of Wheat Growers. In that role, I met many elected and appointed individuals Ė but only a handful who were there for the right reasons; and Dan was one of the finest.

His integrity, experience, and strong character merit our support. Please join me in voting for Dan Newhouse for Congress.
