Oregon Farm Bureau statement on Congressman Greg Walden's announcement that he will not seek reelection.

SALEM, OREGON, Oct. 28, 2019 – This morning, Congressman Greg Walden announced that he will not seek a new term in Congress in the 2020 elections.

It goes without saying, and as many in the Farm Bureau family already know, Greg has been a stalwart champion for Oregon agriculture.

For us, Congressman Walden will be forever synonymous with Congressional District 2.

We applaud and thank Greg for his tireless years in public service and wish him the very best in his next chapter. Thank you, Congressman Walden, for the time, energy, and unwavering dedication you have given to all Oregonians.
