Farm Foundation Hosts Presidential Ag Debate

Kelly Marshall

farm-foundation-forumThe food and agricultural platforms of Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will be the subject of the Farm Foundation® Forum on Wednesday Oct. 19, 2016. Farm Foundation, NFP is partnering the Farm Journal’s AgDay Television in presenting this Forum. If you can’t catch it in person, a free, live audiocast will also be available.

For the last two presidential election cycles, Farm Foundation has provided this opportunity for the candidates, or their representatives, to focus discussions specifically on issues important to agriculture and rural communities. As a non-partisan organization, Farm Foundation has an important role in providing this opportunity for voters to learn more about the specific elements of the respective candidates’ food and agricultural platforms.

Farm Foundation President Constance Cullman will moderate the discussion with representatives of the two campaigns. Former Sen. Mark Pryor will represent the Clinton campaign. Representing the Trump campaign will be Ag Advisor Charles Herbster and
Campaign Co-Chair Sam Clovis. Each campaign will give opening comments, followed by questions and discussion with the audience.
The Forum will be 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. EDT at the Holeman Lounge in the National Press Club.
