Congressman Huelskamp released this statement regarding the award:
“I am honored to receive the ‘Friend of Farm Bureau Award.’ As a farmer myself, I understand the challenges that farmers across the state face day in and day out. The Big First District has a long history of Agriculture that continues to be the driving force of our economy. Kansas agriculture continues to feed and fuel America and the world. I am pleased and honored to stand up for Kansas Agriculture, and will continue to fight for our rural way of life.”
