August 27, 2021

Harrisonburg – On Tuesday Delegate Tony Wilt (R-Broadway) received the endorsement of the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) AgPAC, a political action committee of Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, in the race for the 26th District seat in the Virginia House of Delegates.

“I am grateful to have the support of the premier organization representing Virginia farmers,” said Delegate Wilt. “As a representative of the top ag producing community in the Commonwealth, I understand how critical a vibrant agriculture sector is to our entire local economy. That’s why I have made supporting our farmers and the ag industry a focus during my time in office. Just this year we were successful in passing our legislation that provides more support and tools for our farmers to implement voluntary water quality improvements and I was also proud of our bi-partisan effort to get help for our struggling dairy industry. If reelected, I plan to continue to support policies that preserve our family farms and protect our natural resources, while guardian against ill-conceived heavy handed government mandates that will destroy local farms.”

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

Delegate Wilt currently represents the 26th House District in the Virginia General Assembly. The 26th District includes the City of Harrisonburg and part of Rockingham County.
