The Texas Farm Bureau, one of the most powerful agricultural lobbying organizations in the state, has endorsed a slate of candidates for statewide office, including Uvalde Mayor J Allen Carnes for Agriculture Commissioner. 

Coming from a larger insurer in the state that boasts over 400,000 members, the endorsements are sure to be coveted. They also include:  

  • David Dewhurst, Lieutenant Governor
  • Dan Branch, Attorney General
  • Glenn Hegar, Texas Comptroller
  • Malachi Boyuls, Texas Railroad Commissioner
