Willis Announces Farm Team
Ag Leaders Endorse Colm Willis for Congress

Salem, OR — Today, Colm Willis announced the “Colm Willis for Congress Farm Team”. The team will play a critical role in building support for the Willis campaign among members of the agriculture community. Members will continue to be added as the campaign progresses.

“Farming is critically important to the 5th district. Most insider politicians try to curry favor with the farm lobby. I am proud to be supported by these local farmers who are involved in their communities and have provided jobs for hundreds of Oregonians. They are community leaders here in Oregon,” said Willis.

Farm Team Member Doug Weathers said, “I am pleased to support Colm Willis in his campaign for Congress with this wonderful group of local farmers. He has a great family and the right priorities. He’ll work hard to preserve our way of life. Colm knows small business owners and farmers across the 5th district work hard every day. He’ll take that same work ethic to Congress on our behalf. I am proud to support Colm’s efforts to be the next Congressman from the 5th district.”

Willis is the Republican candidate for Congress in Oregon’s 5th Congressional District. The general election will be held on November 8, 2016.
