KFB announces general election endorsements

MANHTATTAN — Kansas Farm Bureau’s Voters Organized to Elect Farm Bureau Friends (VOTE FBF) Political Action Committee has announced its general election candidate endorsements for federal and state races in Kansas for the Nov. 3 election. Since 1993, VOTE FBF has endorsed and supported candidates for public office who support farming and ranching and rural Kansas. 

“We are proud to represent our members as the Voice of Agriculture, and we believe our grassroots-driven endorsement process does just that,” says Rich Felts, Kansas Farm Bureau president. “County Farm Bureau boards across the state have been working for months talking to and vetting candidates. Their voices are reflected in the endorsements VOTE FBF has made.” 

Kansas Farm Bureau encourages Kansans to support these VOTE FBF-endorsed candidates and continue to research candidates in races where no endorsements have been made as the organization works to elect candidates who understand and advocate for agriculture.

In federal races, Kansas Farm Bureau has endorsed Roger Marshall for U.S. Senate, Tracey Mann (R-KS 1), Jake LaTurner (R-KS 2) and Rep. Ron Estes (R-KS 4).
