Buckeye Firearms Association PAC announces 2016 primary endorsements


Buckeye Firearms Association PAC (BFA-PAC) is proud to announce endorsements for a host of local and state offices in the March 15, 2016 primary.

As a political action committee, BFA-PAC has been issuing endorsements in every election season for the past fourteen years. Through a system of weighing candidate surveys, voting records (where applicable) and personal commitment to the cause, candidates are graded on the traditional A, B, C, D or F scale, in addition to being considered for an endorsement. Candidates who receive an "A" grade based only on our questionnaire are noted with an "Aq" grade.

"Every year gets tougher as more candidates want our endorsement," said Jim Irvine, BFA PAC Chairman. "Shooting is as popular as ever, and few candidates want to be labeled as 'anti-gun' or 'anti-self-defense.' Voters who value freedom can use our voter guide to help them decide which candidate best represents their views on this critical issue."

Buckeye Firearms Association PAC endorsements are focused primarily on state-level races. We also endorse in some local races. Buckeye Firearms Association PAC does not endorse in all federal office elections. We may issue endorsements to candidates for federal office that we have endorsed in prior elections or a candidate we have worked with on Second Amendment issues. Buckeye Firearms Association PAC also reserves the right to address any political race with such importance, we feel compelled to endorse.

The endorsement committee is currently focused on contested primary races, given that voters are given a choice in those races. Candidate surveys are still being received and scored, and more grades and endorsements can be expected in the coming days.
