The Iowa Farm Bureau endorsed former State Senator and combat veteran Zach Nunn’s run for Congress. Today the Iowa Farm Bureau Political Action Committee named him ‘Friend of Agriculture’ for the 2022 general election. According to the Iowa Farm Bureau website, the destination is earned by supporting “issues that directly impact Iowa’s agricultural economy, farm families, and their communities.”
“With one in every five Iowans employed in agriculture and ag-related industries, we must elect Friend of Agriculture candidates who will continue to be champions for agriculture and the hard-working Iowa families who make their living feeding and fueling the world,” said Boone County farmer and IFBF PAC Chair, Kriss Haglund.
Nunn, a former State Senator and 6th generation Iowan, celebrated the endorsement in a statement to the media.
“With generations of hard work and cutting-edge innovation, Iowa farmers now feed and fuel the entire world. Agriculture is our way of life in Iowa, and I’ve been proud to stand with our farmers,” said Zach Nunn. “In Congress, we need a leader who will support the ag industry and take advantage of new market opportunities like value-added production, carbon sequestration, and regenerative agriculture. We need to continue supporting the biofuels industry and always let our farmers control their own land, instead of burdensome regulations put in place by Washington bureaucrats.”

Nunn cited his family’s history in farming and his work in the state legislature to help farmers, reduce taxes, and fight against monopolies and anti-agriculture forces as proof of his commitment to the issues Iowa Farm Bureau members prioritize.
Nunn will face Iowa’s lone congressional Democrat, Cindy Axne, this fall in the general election to represent Iowa’s Third Congressional District in the US House of Representatives.
