Corn Growers Support Hough In Missouri Lieutenant Governor Race

Posted on: April 11, 2024

(JEFFERSON CITY, Mo.)—The Missouri Corn Growers Association (MCGA) today announced its endorsement of Sen. Lincoln Hough for lieutenant governor ahead of the 2024 statewide election. A membership-based organization representing corn farmers across the state, MCGA supports candidates with proven records on policy issues impacting corn growers.

“Sen. Hough is never afraid to speak up for farmers, even when it is not always easy,” said MCGA President Brent Hoerr, a corn farmer from Palmyra. “In addition to his longstanding commitment to public service, Sen. Hough is a farmer himself, having started his own cattle business more than 20 years ago. His track record proves it’s not about political maneuvers but doing what’s right for agriculture and the state. The Missouri Corn Growers Association proudly endorses Lincoln Hough for Missouri lieutenant governor.” 

Hough was awarded the association’s 2023 Public Servant Award for his strong support of corn, ethanol, and transportation initiatives in the State Capitol. MCGA has also endorsed another farmer, current Lt. Gov. Mike Kehoe, in the 2024 gubernatorial race.

“It is an honor to be endorsed by the Missouri Corn Growers Association,” Hough says. “As a first-generation farmer who plans to pass on this way of life to my two sons, I understand the prosperity of Missouri is directly tied to the success of our agriculture industry. Hard work, determination, and innovation will allow us to succeed in the 21st century.” MCGA was formed in 1978 to advance policies that will help protect the rights of farmer-members, build new markets for corn, and increase opportunities through partnerships within agriculture and beyond.
