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 comprised of elected farmer member representatives from each region of the state. Urban area candidates also are evaluated by farmer members from across the state who then make recommendations to the AgPAC Board. 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 or roundtable discussions, and a review of an incumbent’s voting record, as well as the relationship with their farmer constituents.
Incumbents are evaluated based on a positive record during the General Assembly, their leadership and assistance with critical Farm Bureau issues, a keen understanding of current issues affecting agriculture and rural communities, and their history of engaging with Farm Bureau members. For candidates in open seats and urban areas, farmers evaluate their knowledge on issues, as well as their willingness to learn about and support these issues with an open mind.
If you are a candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates or Senate of Virginia and are interested in learning more about VFBF AgPAC, contact Martha Moore.
Please note: AgPAC does not issue endorsements in primary races and will reach out to general election candidates after the primaries.
