Most BFA PAC endorsed candidates win in 2020 General Election
In a hotly-contested election, the vast majority of BFA PAC endorsed candidates enjoyed solid wins.
Some close races have not yet reported final results. However, so far, 83% of endorsed candidates won their contests, including Justice Sharon Kennedy and U.S. Representative Jim Jordan.
With a few exceptions, the endorsement committee focused on the U.S. Congress, Ohio Supreme Court, and the Ohio House and Senate.
In the Presidential race, Ohio went to BFA PAC endorsee Donald Trump by a wide margin, though national results are still uncertain.
2020 has been a strange and challenging year for elections. Officials cancelled in-person primary voting in March due to COVID-19 and the statewide "shutdown," forcing voters to use mail-in absentee ballots.
The virus also dramatically changed how candidates campaigned in the general election and created a huge increase in early and absentee voting.
We would like to thank all our members and supporters for voting their rights this election. And we would especially like to thank the hundreds of volunteers who showed up at our many election training events in 2019 and 2020 and went the extra mile for pro-gun candidates.
