The Alliance for Gun Responsibility Victory Fund is proud to endorse gun responsibility candidates in legislative, county and municipal races across the state. This is the third year that the Alliance has endorsed candidates who support commonsense laws that balance gun rights with responsibility.
“Change happens at every level. That’s why it’s one of our top priorities to support candidates who see gun violence as a preventable public health and safety issue. We need more of those champions in office to in order to pass meaningful gun violence prevention policies,” said Renée Hopkins, CEO of the Alliance for Gun Responsibility.
In 2016, Victory Fund endorsements supported the successful election of over 40 candidates, many who ran on gun responsibility issues. The Victory Fund endorsed 31 incumbent legislators and Governor Inslee for re-election and eight candidates, who won in open seat elections in 2016. The fund also endorsed two candidates who successfully beat incumbents: Senator Lisa Wellman in the 41st legislative district and Representative Kristine Reeves, who now serves the 30th legislative district.
