MANHATTAN – Kansas Farm Bureau’s (KFB) Voters Organized To Elect Farm Bureau Friends (VOTE FBF) political action committee announced today its endorsement of Derek Schmidt for Kansas governor.

“The support of VOTE FBF is earned, and Derek Schmidt received this endorsement through decades of working with and supporting our members in the legislature and as attorney general,” says KFB President Rich Felts. “County Farm Bureau boards have spent the past several months vetting gubernatorial candidates, and they overwhelmingly endorsed Derek to lead the executive branch in Topeka.”

Since 1993, VOTE FBF has endorsed and supported candidates for public office who support farming and ranching and rural Kansas. The 10-member VOTE FBF board relies heavily on the recommendations of members across the state in elevating candidates who understand and champion agricultural issues.
