NCBA's Ethan Lane Reviews Election Results

Thu, 12 Nov 2020 08:14:48 CST

NCBA's Ethan Lane Reviews Election Results During a cattle industry Stockmanship and Stewardship virtual meeting this week Ethan Lane, NCBA vice president of government affairs, offered an analysis of the national election results.

On the senate side, Wyoming attorney, cattle producer and former Congressman Cynthia Lummis will be the first woman to represent that state in the U.S. Senate.

She is a friend of agriculture and we are excited to see her return to Congress, Lane said.

Kansas physician Dr. Roger Marshal moved from the U.S. House to the Senate as he was elected to his first term in Kansas.

He has been a real champion for agriculture in Kansas, Lane said.

Former college football coach Tommy Tuberville will start his first term in the Senate representing Alabama.

One big change in the Senate is that Sen. Pat Roberts(R-KS) is retiring and his leadership post as Agriculture Committee chairman will be missed.

Lane said Robertís expected replacement will be Sen. John Boozman of Arkansas.

On the House side, Lane noted one of the more interesting stories is the Republicans picking up an expected net of 10 seats, despite the close races in other areas, including the Presidentís office.

One big shake up in the House is the loss of Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) who failed to win re-election.

We will now start the process of determining a new chairman, Lane said.

Two candidates for the chairmanship are Rep. David Scott of Georgia and Rep. Jim Costa of California.

Both men are moderate Democrats and have a long positive history of working with NCBA, Lane said.

We donít anticipate any disruption in that strong relationship as a result of this leadership change, Lane said.
