Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund Expands Federal Endorsements


NEW YORK — Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund (“Everytown”) expanded its endorsements today of candidates running for the U.S Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives for the 2022 election cycle. This follows the first major round of federal endorsements made last month, as well as endorsements for non-federal statewide offices across the country. A full list of newly endorsed candidates across 24 states is below. 

“After working together to break the 26-year logjam on gun safety legislation in Congress, these proven leaders are committed to building on that momentum,” said John Feinblatt, president of Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund. “Ending our gun violence epidemic requires passing strong gun laws, and that requires electing strong gun safety champions like the candidates we’re endorsing today.”

“The gun sense majorities in Congress have delivered life-saving progress on gun safety – and now is the time to keep going 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 163 Moms Demand Action and Students Demand Action volunteers running for office up and down the ticket, including Rep. Lucy McBath (GA-07), a former Moms Demand Action volunteer. The full list of candidates endorsed today is available below:
