TFB AGFUND endorses Ken Paxton for Texas Attorney General
9/29/2014

Waco, TEXAS--The board of directors of the Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) political arm, the TFB Friends of Agriculture Fund (AGFUND), Inc., announced today a unanimous endorsement of Republican nominee Ken Paxton in the race for Texas Attorney General.

"Senator Paxton has a strong record of standing up for property rights, fighting the overreach of the EPA and keeping the heavy hand of government at bay," said Kenneth Dierschke, president of TFB and AGFUND. "We support Senator Paxton's goals of limited and efficient government."

Dierschke is a grain and cotton farmer from San Angelo. He says Paxton understands agriculture's role in the Texas economy.

"A substantial portion of the Texas economy and job market rests on agriculture, so it is crucial we have a strong Attorney General defending it," Dierschke said. "Ken Paxton is the right man for the job."

The Texas Farm Bureau is the state's largest organization of farm, ranch and rural families. AGFUND is its political action arm funded by donations from members.
