The National Association of Home Builders has officially endorsed candidates for the U.S. House and Senate elections on Nov. 8. This is the first time in the association’s 74-year history that they have endorsed candidates for Congress.

As NAHB Chairman Ed Brady said in a press release,

“As housing goes, so goes the economy. This election could determine if the housing and economic recovery stays on track or veers off course. The incumbents and candidates from both political parties that NAHB will be endorsing have all exhibited a commitment to advance policies that will promote homeownership and rental housing opportunities for all Americans.”

In the weeks leading up to the Nov. 8 elections, NAHB will be working with state and local home builders associations to endorse candidates. After all endorsements have been finalized, the NAHB will make the full list available on their website.

However, the NAHB will not be endorsing a presidential candidate.
