Former U.S. Senator and Agriculture Committee Chair Blanche Lincoln is joining Farmers for Free Trade to help launch the #MotorcadeForTrade Tour in Pennsylvania. The tour kicks off Friday and Lincoln will join the campaign as a senior advisor and spokesperson.
She brings over two decades of experience working on agriculture and trade policy. Her expertise brings a powerful voice to American farmers during a critical time in trade history, according to the organization. Lincoln called Congressional approval of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement “a top priority for our nation’s agriculture industry.”
Senator Lincoln represented Arkansas in Congress for 16 years as both a two-term member of the House and a two-term member of the Senate. She is the youngest female ever elected to serve in the United States Senate and became the first female in history to serve as Chair of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry.
