    Default FOAC 2020 Voting Guide .. not recommendated?

    I just noticed the FOAC has their voting recommendations listed on the link at their website
    https://foac-pac.org/Voter-Guide

    I was disappointed and confused to what I found regarding my voting district. Both my State Representative Kurt Masser and State Senator John Gordner were listed as “not recommended “. These two normally vote pro gun. Gordner was very prompt to answer my emails concerning second amendment issues. In addition he even sponsored pro gun legislation (SB 5 for one). Both are running unopposed in the primary. Why are they throwing two pro gun state members of congress under the bus? Do they want the both state legislative houses to fall in the hand of the anti-gun democrats?

    Another thing I noticed is that the FOAC recommended GOP Attorney General Candidate Heather S Heidelbaugh. I searched her campaign website and other her other social media and she never posted as a much as a peep on where she stands on gun rights.

    I guess it might be anyone but Shapiro but their legislative recommendations or should I say non recommendations in my voting area are disturbing.

    I suggest everyone go to the above link and checkout you own voting area.

    That group does not impress me and they have mine screwed up too. Kathy Barnette is my Republican House Candidate and she says that she supports the 2A. I don't know what they're up to. And they also don't support a vote for John Emmons in CHESCO. If they don't know they should just have that on their form.

    Take their guide with a grain of salt, because Kim.
    Also because when they don't get feedback from candidates they automatically red flag them even if they would have been pro gun. Happened with our county sheriff on the last election and this guy is about as pro gun as he can possibly be.

    Keep in mind that just because somebody says that they "support the second amendment", it doesn't mean that the ACTUALLY support it. For example:

    "You're full of s---," Biden replied, adding that "I support the Second Amendment."

    Every candidate is contacted REPEATEDLY if they don't answer the questionnaire. How pro gun can they be when they can't take 10 minutes of their time? Do you want us recommending someone we know absolutely nothing about?

    My representative is endorsed on their website but not on the voter guide. So Iím not sure what is going on there.

    No.
    But the guide should reflect that there wasn't enough information gathered to render a definitive yes or no vote when it happens.

    Who? We've gone from paper questionaires to a web based system. It could be this person previously filled one out and didn't update on the site... It's a work in progress folks If you have a candidate that you feel is good contact them and make sure the fill out the questions...

    No but if you don't know WTF can't you just put that down? It makes you look lazy and ignorant. Of course my opinion is irrelevant to you.

    Do your own research and vote for who you think is the right candidate. We donít need lemmings on either side.
