Kansas Farm Bureau Endorses Marshall For U.S. House Seat

Another influential agricultural group is backing the Republican primary challenger to U.S. Representative Tim Huelskamp in the sprawling 1st District of Western and Central Kansas.

The Kansas Farm Bureau’s political arm announced its endorsement of Great Bend obstetrician Roger Marshall on Friday.

The Kansas Livestock Association has also endorsed Marshall. The two groups did not endorse a candidate when Huelskamp ran for re-election in 2014.

Huelskamp has been losing support in his mostly rural district since he was removed from the House agricultural committee by his colleagues.

Kansas Farm Bureau president Rich Felts says endorsements are based on county affiliates’ recommendations from across the state.
