The election cycle was expected to be competitive in 2020, so members stepped up their support this year for BUILD-PAC, NAHB’s political action committee dedicated to electing the most qualified pro-housing, pro-business candidates to federal office.
During the 2019-2020 election cycle, BUILD-PAC contributed to 355 U.S. congressional candidates and played in over 100 competitive races. As of Nov. 3, 96% of the candidates BUILD-PAC supported won their races. “BUILD-PAC has accomplished many victories this election cycle despite the impact of a global pandemic,” said 2020 BUILD-PAC Chairman Justin MacDonald. “I am pleased to report that we disbursed nearly $2.8 million to federal candidates and committees across the country. Now more than ever, it is important for us to unite as an industry.”
NAHB this year endorsed 159 candidates for the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives who have shown a commitment to policies that promote homeownership and rental housing opportunities for all Americans. NAHB supported the candidates it endorsed with an intensive voter mobilization effort. This initiative included email messages, direct mail ads and online video content sent to NAHB members in specific states and congressional districts urging them to support and vote for our “Home Builder Heroes.”
