‘Farmers for Joe’ congratulates Joe Donnelly on Senate primary victory

Mike Starkey, a sixth-generation Brownsburg farmer and founding member of 'Farmers for Joe,' issued the following statement after Joe Donnelly's victory in the Democratic Senate primary:

“Indiana farmers deserve a Senator who works as hard as we do, and that’s why I’m excited to congratulate Joe Donnelly on tonight’sSenate primary victory. We stand with Joe because he’s traveled to farms in every corner of our state to listen to our concerns and bring them to Washington in farm bill negotiations and on the Senate Agriculture Committee. Whether it’s fighting Washington bureaucrats and their costly regulations or giving us the best opportunity to sell what we grow in markets across the world, I know that we can always count on Joe to fight for Hoosier farmers in Washington.”
