The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Ag Fund, the organization’s state-level political action committee, has endorsed 12 candidates and financially supported 52 candidates running for election in statewide, state Senate and state House races in 2020.
The OKFB Ag Fund board, comprised of farmers and ranchers from each OKFB district, donated a total of $77,750 to candidates over the course of the election cycle.
Candidates in the Nov. 3 general elections who are endorsed by the OKFB Ag Fund include Todd Hiett, Corporation Commissioner; Greg Treat, Senate District 47; Rick West, House District 3; Dell Kerbs, House District 26; Kyle Hilbert, House District 29; Jay Steagall, House District 43; and Jon Echols, House District 90.
Based on the recommendations of Farm Bureau members from across the state, the Ag Fund supports candidates who uphold the beliefs and values of rural Oklahoma. While the Ag Fund contributes financially to candidates, an endorsement is the highest level of support the committee gives to chosen candidates.
