OKAgFund Endorses Candidates in State Elections

As the Oklahoma primary election approaches on June 24, the OKAgFund today announced its endorsement of 21 candidates running for election in state Senate and House races.

The OKAgFund, Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s political action committee, is made up of OKFB members from across the state who identify candidates who demonstrate beliefs and actions that are consistent with OKFB policies, regardless of political affiliation. While the OKAgFund contributes financially to several state campaigns, an endorsement is the highest level of support the committee gives to select candidates.   

“Agriculture is one of Oklahoma’s top producing industries, and it is essential that our legislators understand and are sympathetic to the issues affecting the state’s farmers and ranchers,” said John Collison, OKFB vice president of public policy and media relations. “The OKAgFund continues to be an effective tool to support the election campaign of agriculture-friendly candidates.”

Oklahoma Senate candidates receiving an endorsement from the OKAgFund include Mark Allen, Senate District 4; Curtis McDaniel, Senate District 5; Brian Bingman, Senate District 12; Frank Simpson, Senate District 14; Kim David, Senate District 18; A.J. Griffin, Senate District 20; and Jason Smalley, Senate District 28.

Oklahoma House candidates receiving an endorsement from the OKAgFund include James Lockhart, House District 3; Wade Rousselot, House District 12; George Faught, House District 14; Jerry Shoemake, House District 16; Josh Cockroft, House District 27; Tom Newell, House District 28; Sean Roberts, House District 36; John Enns, House District 41; Scott Martin, House District 46; Mark McBride, House District 53; Casey Murdock, House District 61; Greg Howard, House District 63; Will Fourkiller, House District 86; and Elise Hall, House District 100.
