2018 MN House

Our endorsements are based on a number of factors, including a candidate survey that was sent to each candidate, their public record of votes and statements, and grades from like-minded gun rights organizations. All grades and endorsement recommendations are reviewed and approved by our board.

Our endorsements are valid for the election cycle in which they are published. They should not be taken as an endorsement of the candidate or officeholder's behavior after the date of the election. Keep an eye on the Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus's Legislative Tracker and ongoing updates for information about a Representative or Senator's behavior while in office.

Our candidate survey covers a number of gun rights topics, including constitutional carry, self-defense law reform (stand your ground), licensing and registration, universal background checks, the right to keep and bear arms, and related topics. Generally, we do not post or release candidate surveys.
