Dan Wood, Farm Bureau’s associate director of government relations said “Jesse is a true friend of the entrepreneur and small business. Our farmers and ranchers need representatives in DC who know how business works and how government policies can impact them. Jesse understands the needs of the 6th District and will represent us well in Congress.”
“I’m delighted to receive this show of support from the Farm Bureau,” said Jesse Young. “Farmers and ranchers are the foundations of their communities and are important to the economy of the 6th District. I look forward to working with them and representing them in Washington, D.C..”

He has received numerous endorsements from elected officials and other candidates for office as well. Jesse Young has achieved “On the Radar” status with the National Republican Congressional Committee’s Young Guns program.
