Big “I” member agents can rest assured that they have a strong federal political action committee—InsurPac—tracking all U.S. Senate and House of Representatives races this election.
So far this election cycle, InsurPac has disbursed more than $1.7 million to nearly 300 campaign committees on both sides of the aisle. The PAC has also hosted or co-hosted more than 50 fundraising events for members of Congress and candidates for federal office. InsurPac has gone to bat for members on all points of the political spectrum with one thing in common: They are supportive of the independent agency system.
More than 2,300 agents across the country have supported InsurPac this calendar year as it seeks to raise $1.1 million for the year and $2.1 million for the two-year election cycle. Illinois ($42,169), North Carolina ($40,810) and Iowa ($35,180) currently lead the fundraising pack.
New Hampshire has already achieved “InsurPac Eagle” status for averaging in excess of $100 donated per agency, and several states are optimistic they’ll be able to reach this significant milestone by year-end. Achieving this goal ensures a state priority seating at the 2017 Legislative Conference Breakfast, the signature event of the week’s activities. Additionally, during the annual Big “I” Legislative Conference, InsurPac is proud to host a major donor reception with congressional leaders for a select group of InsurPac donors.
An updated list of contributors from each state is available online.
