OKAgFund Endorses Stitt for Governor, Expands Support for Other Candidates
   


The OKAgFund, Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s grassroots political action committee, has endorsed Kevin Stitt in the Oklahoma gubernatorial election following a meeting of the board on Thursday, Aug. 30.

A grassroots committee comprised of OKFB members from around the state, the OKAgFund contributed an additional $29,500 in financial support to statewide candidates. The committee increased financial support for eight candidates and gave first-time financial support to 25 candidates.

“As farmers, ranchers and rural Oklahomans, we aim to support like-minded candidates who value the rural way of life,” said Coy Farmer, chairman of the OKAgFund. “We are proud to stand with these candidates who we believe will work to ensure a strong future for agriculture and rural Oklahoma.”

The OKAgFund also announced endorsements for seven other candidates including Matt Pinnell for lieutenant governor and Leslie Osborn for labor commissioner. Senate candidates endorsed include Mark Allen, Senate District 4; James Leewright, Senate District 12; Josh West, House District 5; Tom Gann, House District 8; Scott Fetgatter, House District 16; Kenton Patzkowsky, House District 61; and Rande Worthen, House District 64.

Following the Aug. 28 elections, the group was 85 percent successful in backing candidates that won their primary runoff election.

The OKAgFund identifies candidates who demonstrate beliefs and actions that are consistent with OKFB’s policies, regardless of political affiliation. While the OKAgFund contributes financially to several state campaigns, an endorsement is the highest level of support the committee gives to chosen candidates. The OKAgFund is supported by voluntary contributions from Farm Bureau members across the state as an optional portion of their membership dues. To learn more, visit okfarmbureau.org/okagfund.
