“I am so honored and humbled by the support given to me in this race. Support from family, friends, Farm Bureaus in Oregon and literally across the country. To my Oregon friends and colleagues, I can’t possibly adequately communicate the depth of my appreciation for all your encouragement, help, and support. I thank you all for that support.

I thank Bob Stallman for his transformational leadership at AFBF over the last 16 years. Today the delegate body had a choice among four dedicated, capable, passionate Farm Bureau leaders for their next president. We entered the race as friends, and we continue that friendship now that the members have made their choice. We will all be better leaders through the experiences gained in this campaign.

I congratulate Zippy Duvall on his election and wish him every success as American Farm Bureau President.”
