Brownback running for President - his views on Rural America

Kansas Sentor Sam Brownback is running for President of the United States. The Senator announced in January 2007 that he was going to through his hat in the ring. In regards to rural America, there the Senator is quite familiar with the issues having grown up on Kansas farm, serving as a national FFA officer, Kansas Secretary of Agriculture and as a member of the US Senate.

From the Senators campaign website on his views on Agriculture:

Agriculture - During my time as Secretary of Agriculture in Kansas, I saw firsthand the issues faced by today’s farmers. Clean air and water continue to be of top importance, as are the costs of fertilizer and other supplies. America must support the efforts of the agriculture industry, so that it can continue to supply a safe and economical food supply. I believe in agriculture innovation and remain committed to efforts that will help enable farmers to embrace the production of biofuels such as ethanol. I will continue to support America’s agriculture industry by bolstering rural communities and the efforts of America’s farmers.
