Since 1969, the Realtors® Political Action Committee (RPAC) has promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United States. The purpose of RPAC/PAF (Political Advocacy Fund) is clear: Realtors® raise and spend money to elect candidates who understand and support their interests. The money to accomplish this comes from voluntary contributions made by Realtors®. These are not members’ dues; this is money given freely by Realtors® in recognition of how important campaign fundraising is to the political process. RPAC/PAF doesn’t buy votes. RPAC/PAF enables Realtors® to support candidates that support the issues that are important to their profession and livelihood.
