Candidates on Ethanol

Cindy Zimmerman

McCain ObamaOver the past two weeks, key energy advisors to the McCain and Obama presidential campaigns have shared their views on ethanol with Agritalk Radio host Mike Adams.

Heather Zichal, the policy director for energy, environment and agriculture for the Obama campaign spoke on behalf of Senator Obama, while Jim Moseley, former Deputy Secretary of the US Department of Agriculture and a member of the McCain-Palin farm and ranch team represented Senator McCain.

The appearances on the syndicated radio program which is heard on 70 stations nationwide were supported by the Renewable Fuels Association in an effort to draw attention to ethanol as an issue in the presidential campaign. RFA president Bob Dinneen said, “Heather and Jim clearly understand the issues and were outstanding representatives for their respective candidates. We thank them both for their participation.”
