REALTORS® Political Action Committee
Below are policy issues that passed due to the support of RPAC endorsed candidates:
Myth: RPAC favors a political party
Fact: In 2015, RPAC gave to Democrats and Republicans in almost exactly proportional fashion.
Reasons: The Republicans hold the majority in the VA House and Senate, meaning greater influence on key committees. And one of the twenty House and Senate districts in our RPAC territory are competitive; only half had challengers
2015 Competitiveness Example
Competitiveness is measured by how many of the last seven statewide races of the opposing party has won in that district.
