FreedomWorks for America Candidates Achieve Widespread 2020 Victories
WASHINGTON, D.C. — FreedomWorks for America is proud to congratulate our outstanding candidates on their victories in this year’s election. This cycle, our activists sent over 10 million peer-to-peer texts and knocked on more than 100,000 doors on behalf of these candidates. With some race margins as thin as 300 votes, our activists’ efforts were crucial in making the difference and getting more conservatives elected to Congress.
Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks for America President, commented:
“These victories are the reward for a multi-year effort led by our grassroots activists to mobilize a strong community behind pro-economy, small government candidates. We are particularly happy to see that seven Republican women have either defeated incumbents, taken open seats, or have won re-election. These campaigns should serve as the blueprint for how the GOP can retake the House in 2022.
“The implications of this year’s election could not be clearer: Voters are put-off by Democrats’ increasingly socialist agenda, and they are rapidly moving toward Republicans’ positive, pro-America message. I cannot stress enough that our grassroots community was critical in each of these victories this cycle. We look forward to once again mobilizing the nation’s greatest, small government grassroots community in 2022.”
The following is a list of our candidate wins so-far:
—Nancy Mace (SC-01), Yvette Herrell (NM-02), and Maria Elvira Salazar (FL-27) each defeated incumbent Democrats.
—Byron Donalds (FL-19), Victoria Spartz (IN-05), Mary Miller (IL-15), Matt Rosendale (MT-At-Large), and Cynthia Lummis (WY-Sen) each claimed open seats.
—Chip Roy (TX-21), Steve Chabot (OH-01), Joni Ernst (IA-Sen), and Steve Daines (MT-Sen), each prevailed in races often labeled “Toss-Up” by many.
—Paul Gosar (AZ-04), and Ted Budd (NC-13) each held their seats.
