CAGV 2023 Candidate Grades & Endorsements
Vote for candidates who support common-sense gun laws.
CAGV grades and endorsements were determined using responses to the CAGV Candidate Questionnaire sent to all candidates and, if the candidate is an incumbent, an assessment of their legislative record. Also considered are one-on-one interviews with CAGV, public statements, testimony and floor speeches, and appearances at public events.
Candidates who did not return the survey and have no public record that reveals where they stand on gun violence prevention were not graded and therefore not listed. However, declining to participate (after multiple requests) may be indicative of where a candidate stands on measures to keep Connecticut safe from gun violence.
