REALTOR®-supported candidates across the country at the federal, state, and local levels scored wins that promise to benefit the real estate industry’s goals of strong communities and healthy residential and commercial property markets.
The National Association of REALTORS® supported hundreds of local, state, and federal candidates, selecting real estate champions regardless of party affiliation. Among some of these wins yesterday in Congress: Andy Barr (R) of the 6th district of Kentucky, Joyce Beatty (D) of the 3rd district of Ohio, Sean Duffy (R) of the 7th district of Wisconsin, and Pete Aguilar (D) of the 31st district of California.
In key state and local races, Larry Hogan (R)—a long-time real estate professional—was reelected governor of Maryland, Sam Yingling (D) was reelected to the Illinois House of Representatives, Sydney Harrison (D) was elected to the Prince George’s County Council District in Maryland, and Dale Washburn (R)—another real estate veteran—was elected for the first time to the Georgia state assembly.
