AG-PAC endorses Cornilles in contested 1st Congressional Race


AG-PAC, Oregon’s largest coalition of agriculture and natural resources political action committees has endorsed Rob Cornilles in the race to fill Oregon’s vacant first congressional district seat. Agriculture and natural resources provide about 25% of Oregon’s total economy, Rob understands that. He values that.” said Chairman Roger Beyer, a Christmas tree grower. “With the economic and political challenges facing this state and this country, we need a strong voice in congress. Rob Cornilles has the skills, vision, and small business background and success to be the kind of effective member of congress the first district has not had for nearly twenty years. Rob is a community leader who will not toe the party line in Washington, D.C.,” added Beyer, “He is the kind of independent thinker who will listen to the needs of his constituents. He won’t be afraid to stand up to the career politicians when they trot out the tired partisan bickering that has contributed to this mess.”

AG-PAC has membership which represents the breadth and depth of Oregon’s agricultural, geographic, and natural resource diversity. The organization makes endorsements based on candidates’ understanding of the importance of agriculture and natural resources to Oregon’s economic vitality, and who value the contributions made by Oregon’s farm, ranch, and forestry families.
