Candidate vs Congressman
Agriculture and agribusiness are simply not top priorities for the Congressman, and no one ever really thought they were. During his 2018 campaign, farm groups had expressed apprehension, stating that they felt Armstrong doesn’t grasp their issues. They were right to be concerned.
As a candidate, Kelly Armstrong was not one to shy away from taking a position on the Trade War, but as a Congressman? He hasn’t spoken one word about it. Perhaps Congressman Armstrong thinks it best to fly under the radar in the hopes that the trade war will end soon, or perhaps he simply doesn’t care. One thing is for sure: come re-election time, Kelly Armstrong won’t be able to ignore the farmers he has failed to stand up for in Washington, anymore.
