MCRGO-PAC 2018 Candidate Endorsements

Candidates filing for governor, state senate, and state representative for the August 2018 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 were rated based on their responses to this survey. Candidates endorsements for the November 2018 General Election were determined based on those ratings. In seats with a proven pro-gun incumbent who returned a survey, the incumbent was endorsed over a pro-gun challenger. In open seats, all pro-gun candidates who returned a MCRGO survey were endorsed.

Candidates who failed to submit a survey before the August primary or who scored 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 an endorsement for their legislative district by e-mailing brady@mcrgo.org. MCRGO-PAC does not endorse in federal races. For U.S. Senate and U.S House races, please consult the NRA-PVF endorsements HERE.
