The Sangamon County Farm Bureau is backing a GOP candidate for sheriff ahead of the March primary.
Undersheriff Jack Campbell picked up that endorsement Thursday.
Campbell says he’s ecstatic that the farming group, which has 10,000 members, decided to back his candidacy.
Campbell, as a lifelong rural county resident, he’s worked with the Farm Bureau on many initiatives in the past few years.
Campbell faces off with former Sheriff’s Deputy Wes Bar March 18th.
