Supported Candidates

All of your contributions to Transamerica PAC go toward disbursements to candidates and related PACs. There are a variety of criteria used to decide which candidates will recieve support from our PAC. Those criteria include:

  • The candidate’s position on issues affecting the insurance industry and business environment generally
  • That the candidate is a viable choice for the seat he or she is seeking
  • The candidate's relation to Transamerica and our industry - for example, if the candidate would represent a district where one of our offices is located, or where many of our employees or customers live, or if the candidate has a background in the insurance and retirement industry
  • The integrity and character of the candidate

2020 is an important election year, and Transamerica PAC is working hard to support the best candidates in both parties and in both chambers of Congress. The list below includes candidates we have supported so far in the 2019-2020 election cycle.
