Election 2016

  

After a historic election season that never ceased to deliver jaw dropping sound bites, endless material for late night television and new political terms like “scorched earth campaign” we finally reached a conclusion to what seemed like a never ending election season: The citizens of the United States of America turned out at the polls and Donald Trump is now the next President of the United States.

President-Elect Donald Trump’s message to working class voters resonated: Voters turned out “bigly” and put him over the edge in the key swing states of Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin – which haven’t voted for a GOP candidate since the 80s.

The Presidential headlines dominated the airwaves but Election 2016 also elected a new Congress (the 115th to be exact). The American Nurses Association Political Action Committee (ANA-PAC) officially endorsed 52 federal candidates for the 2016 cycle. All endorsed candidates went through a rigorous review process so that only the most deserving of candidates received ANA’s seal of approval. Of these 52 candidates, 83% won their election.

These candidates span different states, backgrounds, and political parties while sharing a steadfast commitment to serve the nursing community and uphold ANA’s principles. They will be our champions in Washington, and will support legislation that supports both patients and providers.
