The Washington State Farm Bureau Political Action Committee (WSFB PAC) exists to help elect officials who understand, appreciate and support agriculture in Washington.
The WSFB PAC is truly a grassroots process. PAC decisions originate with our members on the local level. Each County Farm Bureau appoints a Candidate Evaluation Committee, which interviews and evaluates candidates. These committees make recommendations to their County Farm Bureau Boards of Directors. Once approved, the recommendations are forwarded to the WSFB PAC State Board of Trustees.
The 12-member WSFB PAC State Board of Trustees then reviews the county recommendations and determines which candidates to endorse. The trustees also make decisions about campaign contributions to endorsed candidates.
The WSFB PAC is non-partisan. Endorsements are based on the candidates’ understanding and support of the agricultural community and Farm Bureau policies.
Contributions are made from a WSFB PAC fund that contains voluntary contributions from Farm Bureau members. No dues or other Farm Bureau funds are used to support candidates.
