Emily Brewer this week received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC, a political action committee of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in the race for the 64th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

“Having worked tirelessly to stand up for rural Virginia, I am incredibly honored to receive the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation,” said Emily Brewer. “Supporting a growing agricultural economy is personal to me and to have the support of farmers across the 64th District and the state is an overwhelming expression of confidence in the work we have been able to accomplish over the last two years.”

Brewer is among 126 candidates that Virginia VFBF AgPAC has endorsed for House and Senate seats. Endorsements were made based on the recommendations of local committees of farmers.

“Each of these candidates has demonstrated a clear understanding of the needs and challenges farmers are facing and/or have proven their support through their favorable voting records while holding positions in the General Assembly. We believe these candidates will help agriculture and forestry maintain its vitality as the number one industry in Virginia,” said Wayne F. Pryor, chairman of VFBF AgPAC and VFBF president. “We look forward to working with them in the 2020 Virginia General Assembly.”

The non-partisan VFBF AgPAC was created by Farm Bureau in 1999 and employs in-kind contributions to support candidates who can best support agriculture and Farm Bureau issues. A full list of candidates endorsed by the committee can be viewed online at

Brewer was first elected to the 64th District House of Delegates in November 2017. The 64th District encompasses the counties of Isle of Wight and Surry and includes parts of Prince George County and the city of Suffolk.
