The state's Farm Bureau is throwing its support behind a Central Illinois Republican in his bid for U.S. Congress.  The endorsement by the Illinois Farm Bureau's political action committee signals a big boost in Taylorville Republican Rodney Davis' campaign for the 13th Congressional District.  

A Farm Bureau endorsement will mean an in-kind contribution to Davis' campaign likely in the form of paid mailings or advertising.  Davis is running his campaign against Bloomington Democrat David Gill.  The new 13th District covers a portion of the River Bend.
