MCRGO-PAC 2020 Candidate Ratings

Candidates filing for state representative for the August 2020 primary were asked to fill out a short 10 question yes/no survey sent to their campaign mailing address on file with the Michigan Secretary of State Bureau of Elections. Candidates are rated based on their responses to this survey. Each response that differed from MCRGO’s position was marked down one letter grade. Incumbents had their ratings adjusted based on their vote on House Bill 4434 with incumbents voting against the bill receiving an F rating and those voting for the bill receiving a + if they also returned a survey. You can view the 2020 MCRGO-PAC Candidate Survey HERE.

Candidate surveys had a postmark deadline of June 29, 2020. Late or revised candidate surveys received after that date but before the date of the primary election are marked as LATE or REVISED. Candidates who fail to submit a survey before the August primary or who score less than a B rating on their survey are ineligible for endorsement in the general election. Ratings and endorsements are made objectively by a balanced multi-partisan PAC committee with no preference shown for political affiliation. MCRGO members may inquire about the reasoning for a rating for their legislative district by e-mailing brady@mcrgo.org. Please provide your MCRGO membership number when making an inquiry. MCRGO-PAC does not endorse in local, judicial, or federal races. For U.S. Senate and U.S House races, please consult the NRA-PVF endorsements HERE.

The lack of a rating for a candidate means that the candidate failed to submit a survey.
