OKFB Launches Federal PAC, Endorses Congressional Candidates

Thu, 10 Sep 2020 10:28:34 CDT

OKFB Launches Federal PAC, Endorses Congressional Candidates Oklahoma Farm Bureau launched the Ag PAC, the organization’s new federal political action committee, by endorsing six candidates for Congress in the Nov. 3 general election.

The OKFB Ag PAC chose to endorse Sen. Jim Inhofe, as well as Rep. Kevin Hern, 1st Congressional District; Rep. Markwayne Mullin, 2nd Congressional District; Rep. Frank Lucas, 3rd Congressional District; Rep. Tom Cole, 4th Congressional District; and Stephanie Bice, 5th Congressional District.

The endorsements were voted upon by the Ag PAC board, which is comprised of farmers and ranchers in each Farm Bureau district. The board members gathered input from OKFB grassroots farm and ranch members in their districts to help guide their decisions.

“The purpose of our PAC is to support the election of candidates that are going to be helpful in furthering the goals and objectives of Oklahoma farmers and ranchers,” said Keeff Felty, OKFB Ag PAC chair and Jackson County farmer. “We as a committee believe the candidates the Ag PAC has endorsed have the best interests of agriculture and rural Oklahoma in mind.”

The Ag PAC was launched in 2020 to provide the organization’s farm and ranch members a voice in federal elections. The PAC is supported by voluntary contributions from OKFB members.

The OKFB Ag Fund, the organization’s state-level political action committee, will continue to support candidates in state races during the Nov. 3 general election.
