FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 

Manhattan – Kansas Farm Bureau’s Voters Organized To Elect Farm Bureau Friends (VOTE FBF) has released its candidate endorsements for state races in Kansas. In certain races, following the completion of the primary election, vote FBF may make additional endorsements.

Kansas Farm Bureau President Rich Felts reiterated the grass roots process involved in making decisions.

“Each of these endorsements were based on county recommendations in the legislative district.  The VOTE FBF board takes that grassroots input seriously.  We encourage these candidates to work with their county Farm Bureaus as we look forward to helping elect these friends of Farm Bureau in the upcoming elections.”

VOTE FBF was established in 1993 to help elect friends of agriculture and rural Kansas. It has had a more than 90 percent success rate for helping endorsed candidates be elected to office.
