Brazil's powerful farm lobby endorses far-right presidential candidate Bolsonaro

BRASILIA, Oct 2 (Reuters) - Brazil’s congressional farm lobby, which represents the country’s powerful agribusiness sector in both houses, on Tuesday endorsed far-right presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, the front-runner ahead of Sunday’s election.

The Parliamentary Agricultural Front (FPA), a lobby whose members account for more than a third of the lower house and a quarter of the Senate seats, said in a statement it would unite efforts to avoid the return to power of “candidates linked to corruption schemes and the deepening of Brazil’s economic crisis.” (Reporting by Anthony Boadle)
