Arlington Farmer Chris Soules Starring in Renewable Fuels Ad

Arlington farmer and former “Bachelor” star Chris Soules is starring in a new TV ad promoting the economic benefits of ethanol and the Renewable Fuel Standard. Growth Energy, which represents ethanol producers and supporters, is sponsoring the ad. Co-Chair Tom Buis says Soules was the right choice to get that message across.

Soules says he was honored to represent America’s farmers in this ad.

Soules says the use of renewable fuels is more important now than ever.

The ad is hitting airwaves this week only in four states – Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio, which is where most of the opposition’s ads are running. It comes days before the Obama administration is due to announce its final rule on the Renewable Fuel Standard.
