Corn Growers Support Schmitt In 2020 Race

Posted on: September 30, 2020

(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.)—The Missouri Corn Growers Association (MCGA), a membership organization working for the betterment of Missouri corn growers, has endorsed Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt in the upcoming November election.

“Since his appointment, Attorney General Eric Schmitt has fought for several significant issues on corn growers’ behalf,” stated MCGA President Mike Moreland of Harrisonville. “He led the charge on litigation impacting Missouri River water diversion in North Dakota, picked up the torch on Waters of the U.S., and stood up for farmers on challenges to the Missouri Farming Rights Amendment. We look forward to the opportunity to work with Attorney General Schmitt for the next four years.”

To receive an endorsement from MCGA, Schmitt had to meet criteria established by the board of directors, a governing body comprised of 14 corn growers throughout Missouri. These standards include a strong defense of MCGA’s top issues, as well as being a recipient of the organization’s Public Servant Award.

“When it comes to big government trying to regulate the agriculture industry into bankruptcy, I am always going to side with Missouri’s farmers,” Schmitt said. “I am proud to have the support of the Missouri Corn Growers Association.”

MCGA was formed in 1978 to advance policies that will help protect the rights of members, build new markets for corn, and increase opportunities through partnerships within agriculture and beyond. To learn more, visit
