Republican gubernatorial hopeful Bill Simon has collected an endorsement from the influential California Farm Bureau Federation. His dawn federation nod was announced at a John Deere tractor dealership in Bakersfield. Then, the Simon campaign bus rolled up Highway 99 to Tulare for a tour and news conference at a World Agriculture Expo museum.
Surrounded by hay bales and baskets for produce, Simon repeated his promise to support farmers when he’s elected governor. Simon asked the farmers to spread the word that help in the form of support for agriculture industries is on the way.
