Phillip Leibring, a farmer from Spencer County and who chairs congressional district PAC said, “Congressman Bucshon understands the importance of agriculture to Indiana and the 8th Congressional District. As a farmer in the district, I understand that his endorsement by IFB ELECT is recognition of his support of agriculture, farm families and rural Indiana. His support of agriculture is impeccable; you would be hard pressed to find another representative with a record of support like the congressman’s.”
