NAHB Breaks Tradition, Will Endorse Candidates For House And Senate Races

September 14, 2016

The National Association of Home Builders will endorse candidates in U.S. House and Senate elections this fall. It will be the first time in NAHB’s 74-year history that the organization offers an endorsement.

NAHB will make an official announcement and submit a full list of candidates in the coming weeks. The organization will not endorse a presidential candidate.

“As housing goes, so goes the economy,” said NAHB Chairman Ed Brady, a home builder and developer from Bloomington, Ill. “This election could determine if the housing and economic recovery stays on track or veers off course. The incumbents and candidates from both political parties that NAHB will be endorsing have all exhibited a commitment to advance policies that will promote homeownership and rental housing opportunities for all Americans.”
