Washington, D.C., March 6, 2020 - With all results now in, voters in 2020 have sent a clear message that they are looking for action on common-sense gun policy, sending every Brady-endorsed candidate up for election on ‘Super Tuesday’ forward to the general election. Brady congratulates all 21 of these candidates in California, North Carolina, and Texas on their hard-fought victories and their consistent support for common-sense gun violence prevention policies. Each of these candidates will advance to the general election, including certain races that will move to a run-off due to “top-two” primary systems.
Brady President Kris Brown shared:
“Across the country, voters showed that strong positions on gun violence and gun policy matter. These results show that voters want strong positions. They are looking for leadership on these issues. And, candidates can and will win when they champion common-sense gun violence prevention. We look forward to working with each of these candidates heading into the general election and then beyond as they head to Congress.”

In the 2020 cycle, Brady has already endorsed over 60 candidates, all of whom have demonstrated a strong commitment to ending the gun violence epidemic in the United States. When over 100 people a day are killed by gun violence, every community and voter is looking for answers. Brady is proud to work with any candidate who is willing to work to end this crisis.
Given the urgent need for federal action to reform our nation’s gun laws and to reduce gun violence, Brady will continue to issue endorsements for the U.S. House of Representatives, U.S. Senate, and state and local offices ahead of the 2020 elections.
Brady has one powerful mission — to unite all Americans against gun violence. We work across Congress, the courts, and our communities with over 90 grassroots chapters, bringing together young and old, red and blue, and every shade of color to find common ground in common sense. In the spirit of our namesakes Jim and Sarah Brady, we have fought for over 45 years to take action, not sides, and we will not stop until this epidemic ends. It’s in our hands.
