2016 Endorsements


After months of television ads, and stacks of mail asking for your vote, it is almost time for REALTORS® to head to the polls and elect the next class of REALTOR® Party Champions. Across the state, REALTOR®-endorsed and supported candidates will be asking for your vote, and stand ready to protect our industry, our clients, and the housing market from unnecessary regulation and harmful taxation. We encourage all REALTORS® to support our REALTOR® Party Champions on November 8th!
