WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 2 – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today made the following statement about Tennessee Farm Bureau Federation President W. Lacy Upchurch’s announcement that he would not seek another term to lead the organization:

“Tennessee farmers have been fortunate to have Lacy Upchurch right beside them, leading the nation’s largest state farm bureau with wisdom and humility for a decade. His conservative leadership has benefited all of the state’s farms, and his expertise will be sorely missed.
