Gun control group rolls out House endorsements

Everytown for Gun Safety rolled out its first round of House endorsements on Thursday, committing to double down on its effort to protect what it has dubbed a “gun sense majority” in the lower chamber.

The 58 endorsements, which were released exclusively to The Hill, mark the first round of the group’s $60 million electoral program.

The list includes Rep. Lucy McBathLucia (Lucy) Kay McBathFloyd’s brother urges Congress to take action The Hill’s Campaign Report: Bad polling data is piling up for Trump Trayvon Martin’s mother Sybrina Fulton qualifies to run for county commissioner in Florida MORE (D) in Georgia’s 6th District, Rep.

The group’s senior political adviser, Charlie Kelly, said Everytown’s priority is to defend a number of incumbents facing contested races in an effort to defend the pro-gun control majority in the House.

“Time and again, this gun sense majority in the House has made it absolutely clear, and made gun safety a priority,” Kelly said. “It’s important that we keep the leadership of the chamber and that gun sense majority.”

Everytown also says it plans to go on the offensive, focusing on historically red states and districts, including Texas.

“Texas is going to be a huge focus for us,” Kelly said. “The gun sense majority effort there is huge both in the state House and in the U.S. House.”

Former Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D) in the 21st District and Gina Ortiz Jones in the 23rd District are among the group’s challenger endorsements.

Everytown has jumped into the electoral fray, launching efforts in a number of states, including Texas and Arizona.

The group rolled out a $250,000 ad campaign earlier this month, focusing on Republican-held House seats in Texas. The group also announced plans earlier this month to spend at least $5 million in Arizona ahead of the state’s highly contested Senate race and the general election.
