Fedorchak Announces Grassroots Coalition of Farmers and Ranchers

May 5, 2024

BISMARCK – Julie Fedorchak today announced a coalition of farmers and ranchers from across North Dakota supporting her campaign for Congress.

“At the very core of North Dakota, our farmers and ranchers stand as the bedrock of our economy and the stewards of our land. Their tireless dedication feeds and fuels our nation and sustains our way of life,” Fedorchak said. “I am honored and humbled to receive such broad support from our agriculture community. I will champion the interests of North Dakota’s farmers and ranchers, ensuring that their voices and concerns are heard loud and clear in Congress.”

This endorsement from North Dakota’s farmers and ranchers underscores Fedorchak’s dedication to national policies that support strong and stable domestic food production.  These policies include effective risk management tools like crop insurance, critical agriculture support programs, and fair trade and marketing opportunities. Fedorchak has pledged to work with North Dakota farmers and ranchers on the reauthorization of a new Farm Bill and will seek a position on the House Agriculture Committee.

The coalition is chaired by Jacob Odermann from Belfield and Sarah Lovas from Hillsboro.
