Since 1969, the  REALTORS® Political Action Committee (RPAC)  has  promoted the election of pro-REALTOR® candidates across the United  States. The purpose of RPAC 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 doesn’t buy votes. RPAC enables REALTORS® to support  candidates that support the issues that are important to their  profession and livelihood.
