AG America Mission Statement
Ag America is the only organization dedicated to electing and supporting Republican Agriculture Commissioners, Secretaries, and Directors. In 2019, the Republican State Leadership Committee welcomed Ag America to its group of state level caucuses to streamline support for down-ballot candidates. The caucus is committed to protecting America’s Ag future through forward thinking agricultural reforms, recognizing the importance of agricultural industries to the American economy, and advocating for free market policies to strengthen America’s farmers and agricultural businesses. Republicans currently control 11 of the 12 statewide elected agriculture commissioner offices and the caucus additionally maintains relationships with other agriculture leaders.
