GKCWPC Endorsement Process

Candidate endorsements for the NWPC is a tiered process. The national board screens and endorses candidates for federal level offices, with the input of the local and state organizations. Statewide candidates are screened and endorsed by state boards. State senate, state representative, and local candidates are screened and endorsed by local caucuses within their geographic areas. The state board may elect to screen and endorse candidates in areas where there is no local caucus.


The GKCWPC because of its unique position, straddling the Missouri and Kansas state line, screens and endorses local candidates in the greater metropolitan area encompassing both Kansas and Missouri.
