TFB AGFUND successful in state, congressional races

Candidates endorsed by Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) AGFUND fared well in the 2022 General Election.

“We need elected officials who bring strong leadership skills, accountability and an understanding of agriculture to our state and national government,” TFB AGFUND President Russell Boening said. “We are encouraged to see leaders on both sides of the aisle who support agriculture win. We look forward to our continued work with these elected officials in helping farm and ranch families and private property owners succeed.”

Overall, AGFUND-endorsed candidates finished election night with 134 wins and five losses, giving the Farm Bureau PAC a winning percentage of 96%.

In statewide races, AGFUND-backed candidates— including Gov. Greg Abbott, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, Attorney General Ken Paxton, Comptroller Glenn Hegar and Land Commissioner candidate Dawn Buckingham—won their races.

All 28 candidates endorsed by AGFUND in congressional races were successful, as were the 20 candidates in Texas Senate races.

In the Texas House races, endorsed candidates won 72 races and lost one. In the Court of Appeals races, endorsed candidates won five races and lost four.

Boening noted it’s important to have elected officials who understand the needs and issues facing rural Texas.

“The Lone Star State grows increasingly urban each year. That’s why it’s so important to have elected officials who recognize the contributions of farmers and ranchers to our state,” he said.

Texas Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm and ranch organization. AGFUND is its political action arm funded by voluntary donations from members.
