Brady Campaign Announces Endorsements of Five Gun Safety Champions

Gun violence prevention organization endorses candidates in VA, FL, NV, and TX

Washington, D.C., June 11, 2018 - On the heels of nine gun safety champions winning their elections this past week, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence announced the organization’s next round of endorsements. These five candidates join the previously announced Brady-backed nominees.

The Brady Campaign officially endorsed three candidates for Senate:

  • Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA)
  • Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX)
  • Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV)

Further, Brady endorsed two candidates for the House of Representatives:

  • Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL-07)
  • Susie Lee (D-NV-03)

“We’re so impressed with the remarkable range of candidates dedicated to joining and leading the fight against gun violence,” stated Brady Campaign co-president Avery Gardiner. “Brady-backed candidates are winning their primaries by focusing on gun safety, and we’re going to keep seeing success from now through November. It’s time for the NRA to realize that the American public is tired of its fear-mongering, and will elect leaders who support sensible gun laws.”

This election cycle, the Brady Campaign is focused on working with and supporting candidates throughout the country who are committed to preventing gun violence. A heavy focus is on whether candidates support Brady’s three-point plan, including expanding background checks, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and passing extreme risk laws.

A resurgent Brady PAC is supporting candidates who commit to making gun violence prevention a top priority and is working to replace candidates who refuse to prioritize the safety of the American public. Brady is doing so through the candidate endorsement process and holding candidates accountable to their questionnaire answers. Brady PAC will target races across the country in support of such candidates, especially in those races targeting candidates who put gun industry profits before the safety of their constituents.

Brady is also focusing heavily on voter registration, including of young voters through its youth initiative, Team ENOUGH. The student-led group will be holding voter registration events throughout the summer and will work to educate and mobilize high school and university students from now until November. The group is also inviting students across the country to form their own Team ENOUGH groups and host nonpartisan candidate forums.

Last November’s elections in Virginia and New Jersey, where multiple Brady-backed candidates won on a clear platform of gun safety, demonstrated that voters are engaging on the issue and are rejecting those supported by the NRA. And with recent polling showing that half of Americans want gun safety to be Congress’s top priority, it’s clear that this issue will be a leading one throughout the 2018 campaign.

Further endorsements will be announced in the weeks and months to come.
