The Presidential race has certainly been captivating the public’s attention with the good, the bad and everything in-between. But NMHC PAC steers clear of the race for the White House, focusing instead on congressional elections in both the House and Senate.
The PAC has contributed to over 250 federal candidates. NMHC supports those Members of Congress who understand and support the many issues that affect the multifamily industry. For more detailed information on who the PAC supports, please visit the NMHC PAC website where you can review the current receipts and disbursements.
Congress will be working through June and then the Democratic and Republican Conventions will be here, along with the planned six-week Congressional recess from July through August, and a short window in the fall before Election Day on November 8. Despite the shortened schedule, there is significant work happening on issues that are critically important to the multifamily industry, and the NMHC government affairs team continues to meet with Members of Congress and their staff to ensure that the industry’s interests are considered during key legislative debate.
This is an important election year. Control of the Senate is up for grabs and it is uncertain what impact the Presidential election will have on congressional races. That’s why it is important for us to be able to support our NMHC allies in Congress now.
As expected, fundraising is a top priority for NMHC PAC Chairwoman Sue Ansel and the NMHC PAC Committee. The PAC Committee will meet during the NMHC Spring Board Meeting this month in Chicago where we will discuss current fundraising activities, as well as how to best navigate this unpredictable election year.
