Realtor® support of RPAC is essential to the political success of PAR, the National Association of Realtors® and local Realtor® associations. Realtor® investments help elect candidates who support Realtor® and consumer interests.
RPAC is non-partisan, considering all candidates for support and focusing on where candidates stand on Realtor® issues, rather than their party affiliation.
RPAC works closely with local Realtor® associations throughout a rigorous candidate screening and support process. RPAC policy requires candidate interviews in all races involving an open seat. Candidate interviews for races involving an incumbent are not necessary unless there is interest in supporting a challenger.
The purpose of the detailed candidate screening process is to develop and strengthen local contacts with candidates and elected officials and to convey Realtor® issues and concerns, as well as to elect candidates to public office who have a detailed understanding of Realtor® and consumer issues. The rigorous process also aims to encourage Realtor® participation in the political process.
If you are a candidate for state-level public office and you’re interested in learning more about our screening process, please contact Sherri Martin, PAR director of Public Policy & Political Affairs.
Determining which candidate to support is an important process involving local association members, RPAC Trustees and state and local staff. Contact PA RPAC staff to see how you can get involved.
