The majority of Congressional Boating Caucus members who were up for reelection have declared victory, according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
That includes Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich., and Reps. Jackie Walorsk, R-Ind., and Lois Frankel, D-Fla., the NMMA said in a brief update on election results and what they mean for the industry.
Five of the Congressional Boating Caucus members that were up for reelection lost their bids — Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala., and Reps. Joe Cunningham, D-S.C., Kendra Horn, D-Okla., Colin Peterson, D-Minn., and Donna Shalala, D-Fla.
An additional 12 members retired.
As of this morning, nearly a dozen members of the caucus remained in races that are still too close to call.
The Democrats are expected to maintain control of the U.S. House of Representatives, albeit by a slimmer margin, and Republicans are expected to maintain control of the Senate.
Joe Biden has a lead, but not a victory, in the Electoral College tally, the NMMA said, pointing out that several states have yet to be decided, and that President Trump’s campaign has filed lawsuits contesting results in multiple states.
The NMMA is hosting a webinar on Nov. 16 at 1 p.m. ET to discuss the results and what they mean for the marine industry; register here.
