Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC, SWVA Farmers
endorse Todd Pillion for Senate

Todd Pillion this week 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 40th District seat in the Virginia Senate.

“As the largest industry in Virginia, agriculture is a fundamental part of our lives and an important way of life in Southwest Virginia,” Pillion said. “Having grown up and worked on a farm in Lee County, I’m particularly honored to again receive this endorsement. I appreciate local farmers across the 40th Senate District and AgPAC for their continued confidence. I look forward to the opportunity to work for you in the Senate of Virginia.” 

Todd Pillion 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.

“Todd’s personal experience, knowledge, and proven record of supporting agriculture and farmers in Southwest Virginia makes him the clear choice for the 40th District Senate seat this November,” said Adam Wilson, a member of the local committee. “We appreciate his time, energy, and openness with us during this process.”

“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 number one 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.”

The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues. A full list of candidates endorsed by the committee can be viewed online at
