Virginia Farm Bureau Federation AgPAC is a non-partisan political action committee that evaluates candidates running for the Virginia General Assembly and statewide offices of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General for potential endorsement.
Candidates are evaluated by farmer members of their local county Farm Bureaus, who then make recommendations to the VFBF AgPAC Board of Trustees, which is made up of elected representatives from each region of the state. The AgPAC Board makes the final endorsement decisions.
The evaluation process begins after the primary elections during state election years and is governed by the AgPAC Board of Trustees. The process can include candidate questionnaires, interviews, a review of an incumbent’s voting record as well as the relationship with their farmer constituents.
For incumbents, we evaluate those based on a keen understanding and a positive record during the General Assembly of issues affecting agriculture and rural communities. For candidates in open seats, farmers evaluate their knowledge on issues as well as their willingness to learn about and support these issues with an open mind.
Endorsements will be announced in late summer. If you are a candidate running for the House of Delegates and want more information, please contact Kelly Roberts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a farmer, or just interested in supporting Virginia agriculture, contribute today.
