Gun Owners of Maine has issued our candidate grades for the upcoming election: 2020 Candidate Gun Rights Grades
Gun Owners of Maine does not endorse candidates and grades them solely on the issue of gun rights.
We’re doing something a little different this year. For each election cycle, many candidates do not receive grades from us. In the past, we did not list those candidates. This year, we are listing them with a question mark (?) next to their name. There are basically two reasons a candidate might not have a grade: 1) It could indicate a lack of recent gun-related legislative activity on their part; or 2) They did not complete our Gun Policy Questionnaire.
This is where you come in.
Politicians should be held accountable for where they stand on defending your rights. We like to get them on record.
If a candidate in your district has not yet been graded, respectfully invite them to complete our questionnaire: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSekr4Q3sigZb_mr7BoRhXlz5y8meo6512s-pF_U9JMQEOv7Ow/viewform
Or, encourage them to issue public statements clarifying their position on gun rights. The more specific they are about which gun control policies they support or oppose, the better.
Grades may be added or updated between now and the November 3rd election.
