DC’s Biggest Farm Bill Opponent Spends $400K to Elect Mary Miller

Meanwhile, Miller has raked in over $1 million in government subsidies from Farm Bill programs

Taylorville, IL — Washington, DC’s biggest opponent of the Farm Bill, dark money Super PAC Club for Growth, is backing double-talking politician Mary Miller’s campaign with $400,000 in advertising, despite the fact that Miller has raked in over $1 million in government subsidies from Farm Bill programs over the years.

“Mary Miller is a fraud. Her campaign is failing, so she’s selling out her constituents to get campaign support from a dark money group opposed to the interests of Illinois farmers and rural America. Mary Miller should immediately denounce Club for Growth for their opposition to the Farm Bill and reject their endorsement, or she should return the $1 million in government subsidies she received back to taxpayers. She can’t have it both ways. This dark money group is working to defeat Rodney Davis because he’s a leading voice for Illinois farmers and rural America in Congress. He will never back down from his pro-Ag record.” – Davis campaign spokesperson Aaron DeGroot

Club for Growth, a DC based dark money organization, has been one of the leading opponents of the Farm Bill, federal legislation with vital programs that support the American farmer, agribusiness, and rural America as a whole. Club for Growth opposed the Farm Bill in 2018 and 2014 and is expected to oppose it again next year. They called the Farm Bill “…nothing less than socialism with a  Republican seal of approval on it.”

Why would Mary Miller tout an endorsement from a group so hostile to her own constituents? Does Mary Miller agree that the Farm Bill is nothing less than Socialism?

Meanwhile, Mary Miller’s family business has received over $1 million in government subsidies from Farm Bill programs over the years. Mary Miller and her husband Chris are officers and co-owners of Miller Bros Farms, which is incorporated in the state of Delaware, a domestic tax shelter.

Chris Miller, has received $942,419 in USDA subsidies. Mary’s businesses Miller Bros. Farms, Inc. and Miller Bros Inc, have received $104,742 and $34,871 in USDA subsidies, respectively.

Rodney Davis is a strong supporter of the Farm Bill and the benefits it provides to Illinois farmers. As a member of the House Ag Committee, Rodney served as a Farm Bill conferee in 2013 and 2018, negotiating a successful Farm Bill and improving its programs twice. Rodney regularly meets and talks with Illinois farmers and members of the Illinois Farm Bureau and advocates for their concerns in Congress. He knows how vital Farm Bill programs are to farmers in Illinois and across the country. He is a proud recipient of the Illinois Farm Bureau ACTIVATOR endorsement for the 2022 Primary election.
