The PAC's leaders flatly rejected the idea Wednesday. The veterans group established the PAC in 1979, but it is operated separately. The PAC bases its endorsements on how lawmakers voted on
specific issues of importance to veterans and members of the military.
"The VFW-PAC will not abandon those in Congress that have supported issues of critical importance to our nation's security and veterans," said a statement posted on the PAC's website.
Hundreds of VFW members have been calling the national headquarters in recent days to complain about some of the endorsements, particularly about two races - both featuring Democratic incumbents.
In calling on the PAC to rescind its endorsements, the VFW's commander in chief, Richard L. Eubank, and two other officers said that the endorsement process "unintentionally provided favoritism to the incumbents."
"It is now evident it was unfairly skewed," Eubank wrote in a letter published on the organization's website.
The VFW has about 1.5 million members, and the endorsement from its PAC is usually widely advertised by the candidates.
