Carly Fiorina Earns Endorsement of Nisei Farmers League

CLOVIS, CA - During a press conference held at Bella Frutta in Clovis to discuss the important role the agriculture industry plays in the Central Valley’s economy, U.S. Senate candidate Carly Fiorina today earned the endorsement of the Nisei Farmers League.

“Carly Fiorina has made it her priority to understand firsthand the challenges facing our state’s economy – particularly in the Central Valley and in the agriculture industry. Carly understands how jobs are created; she is committed to helping not only this Valley, but the entire state get back to work. I know that she will put the people of California first, and that’s why we are pleased to announce our endorsement of her campaign today,” said Nisei Farmers League President Manuel Cunha.

The Nisei Farmers League was established in 1971 as a “mutual protection society” to support Japanese-American growers in the Fresno area. Since then, the League has grown to include members of many ethnicities and nationalities, but it continues to ensure property and other rights of local growers by providing them a strong, unified voice regarding the most important issues facing the agriculture industry today.

“The Nisei Farmers League has a long history of representing Central Valley growers during tough times, and I am honored to have their help and endorsement in this important campaign,” said Fiorina. “If Washington is serious about bringing jobs back to the Central Valley and restoring our state’s agricultural economy to its height, we must start by taking the easy, common-sense steps first: restoring water flow and implementing policies that support real, sustainable jobs. Barbara Boxer has shown she is unwilling to take those steps, and that’s why I am running to replace her this November.”

Fiorina has previously earned the endorsements of the California Farm Bureau Federation, Fresno County Supervisor Debbie Poochigian, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims, Clovis Mayor Pro Tem Jose Flores and Clovis City Councilman Nathan Magsig.
