Washington — The Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (Big I) revealed that its political action committee, InsurPac, distributed more than $1.6 million in the 2008 campaign cycle resulting in a 92% congressional victory rate.

“While the dust is still settling on campaign 2008, and our victory rate could actually increase a bit, one thing is certain: Just as the election was historic for our nation, it also was historic for InsurPac,” says Robert Rusbuldt, president and CEO of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America.

In disbursing contributions, InsurPac does not look at party affiliation, but supports representatives, senators and candidates for federal office that have been advocates and supportive of the independent agency system.
