MANHTATTAN — Kansas Farm Bureau’s (KFB) Voters Organized To Elect Farm Bureau Friends (VOTE FBF) political action committee today announces its endorsements for Kansas Senate and House elections.

Since 1993, VOTE FBF has endorsed and supported candidates who support KFB policy and understand the needs of Kansas agriculture. The 10-member VOTE FBF board also values the recommendations of members across the state based on their personal interactions with candidates.

“Candidates earn a VOTE FBF endorsement by visiting with our members and demonstrating they understand the issues farmers and ranchers face,” says KFB President Joe Newland. “County Farm Bureau boards across the state have been working for months talking to and vetting candidates to provide grassroots feedback to VOTE FBF.”

VOTE FBF is funded through voluntary contributions. For more information about VOTE FBF and the endorsement process, visit www.kfb.org/votefbf.

In federal races, VOTE FBF previously endorsed the re-election of Reps. Tracey Mann (KS 1) and Ron Estes (KS 4). It also has endorsed Derek Schmidt in Kansas’ 2nd District race.
