November 7, 2018  • Public Policy

The OKAgFund, Oklahoma Farm Bureau’s political action committee, achieved an 84 percent success rate in supporting candidates who were successful in the Nov. 6 general election.

The committee was 100 percent successful in backing statewide candidates who were elected including Gov.-elect Kevin Stitt, Lt. Gov.-elect Matt Pinnell and Attorney General Mike Hunter.

“We are excited about the opportunity to work with new Gov. Kevin Stitt and Lt. Gov. Matt Pinnell,” said Rodd Moesel, OKFB president. “These bright, capable new leaders have proven already that they are good listeners and are very interested in rural Oklahoma. We hope to work with them as they solidify their visions and develop their plan of action for our great state. We believe they will work to understand the needs of agriculture and rural Oklahoma and work with us to grow all of Oklahoma.” 

In the 2018 election season, the OKAgFund gave $132,750 to support a total of 114 candidates. The committee also endorsed 33 total candidates.

A grassroots committee comprised of OKFB members from around the state, the OKAgFund identifies candidates who demonstrate beliefs and actions that are consistent with the organization’s policies, regardless of political affiliation.  

The OKAgFund is supported by voluntary contributions from OKFB members across the state as an optional portion of their membership dues.
