When it comes to election day, political pundits love to discuss which way “farmers” are going to vote. In the case of this election, the prevailing idea is that most farmers—especially commodity growers in the Midwest—will vote for President Trump. Many will. But farmers are a diverse group with diverse political opinions. In this episode, Ohio farmer and political organizer John Russell offers one unique perspective from the field. Russell is working with a super PAC called Rural Vote to promote Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the right choice for farmers, a more resilient food system, and rural communities. He shares his observations and opinions with host Lisa Held.
