PRESS RELEASE: Western Growers’ Board of Directors Endorses Senator John McCain

The Western Growers Board of Directors has unanimously endorsed Senator John McCain.

Tom Nassif, President and CEO of Western Growers, issued the following statement: “In a recent column, I wrote, ‘We need fewer politicians and more statesmen.’ John McCain is among the statesmen we need now more than ever. Throughout his career, Senator McCain has sought to advance pragmatic conservative solutions to some of our most challenging problems. He is a leader among those who place problem-solving ahead of gridlock. We are proud to once again endorse Senator McCain for reelection to the U.S. Senate and we look forward to working closely with him next year and in the years to come.”

“I am honored to have the support of Western Growers,” said John McCain. “Western Growers represents some of the hardest working people in America who produce the nation’s fresh fruits, vegetables and tree nuts, including half of its fresh organic produce. I am grateful for the support of an organization that is creating jobs, protecting crops and water resources, and supporting those who feed our country.”
