Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund Announces New Gubernatorial and Statewide Endorsements


NEW YORK — Today, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund (“Everytown”) expanded its endorsements for statewide offices. A full list of endorsed candidates is below and represents races across nine states.

“The fact that so many candidates are running hard on gun safety is further proof that the political calculus has changed, and that supporting common-sense gun laws isn’t just good policy — it’s also good politics,”  John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund. “Ending our gun violence epidemic requires supporting gun safety laws, and that requires electing strong gun safety champions like the candidates we’re endorsing today.”

“Gun sense majorities in state capitols across the country have delivered life-saving progress on gun safety. Now is the time to build on that momentum by re-electing our champions and growing these majorities,” said Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action. “These gun sense champions can count on a grassroots army of Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action volunteers to put everything on the line to get them elected in November.”

Everytown has already endorsed 121 Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action volunteers running for office up and down the ticket, representing the growing power of the grassroots gun safety movement. Everytown also endorsed statewide tickets in Colorado, Illinois, and New York last month.
