As millions of voters cast their ballots during another pivotal election year, BUILD-PAC – NAHB’s bipartisan fundraising arm to elect pro-housing candidates – delivered in helping to ensure the incoming Congress supports industry-friendly policies.
This election cycle, BUILD-PAC worked closely with House and Senate leaders, contributing to 376 campaigns and endorsing 183 candidates. Increased investment from NAHB members allowed BUILD-PAC to disburse a total of $2.8 million to federal candidates and committees for these elections.
Of the 376 candidates, BUILD-PAC remained active in 100 competitive or toss-up House and Senate races. Thanks to the PAC’s involvement, 92% of supported campaigns won their races on Nov. 8. And of the candidates who received BUILD-PAC’s endorsements, 174 won their races – tallying a 95% success rate.
NAHB’s government affairs team is hard at work with incumbent and newly elected officials to elevate the key issues in the home building industry and deliver results in the form of beneficial policies. BUILD-PAC is already preparing for the 2023-2024 election cycle, with fundraising events across the country raising money to endorse and elect candidates that serve NAHB members.
