Kansas farmers and ranchers who understand how elections help determine the success of agriculture and rural communities have offered endorsements of like-minded candidates for national and state office.

The Voters Organized To Elect Farm Bureau Friends (VOTE FBF), the Political Action Committee of Kansas Farm Bureau, have offered endorsements of candidates for the Aug. 5 primary election. The KFB PAC will follow with a round of endorsements in the general election later this year.

“If elected, these candidates have a job to do – represent the best interests of their constituents,” said Steve Baccus, an Ottawa County grain producer who serves as Kansas Farm Bureau president.  “We also have a job to do – make sure they understand the vital importance agriculture plays in the daily lives of their constituents, regardless of the geographic location of their district.”

“Like everything in Farm Bureau, the political endorsement process begins at the grassroots level,” Baccus continued. “Volunteer farmers and ranchers from our county Farm Bureau organizations met, reached consensus and forwarded their views to the VOTE FBF board.”

Volunteer county Farm Bureau organization recommendations are based on a dialogue with candidates in a variety of forms, such as personal appearances, candidate forums and candidate questionnaires.
