Explanation of Rating System While there are a number of pro-life/pro-family incumbent candidates running unopposed, the CCNM Voter Guide evaluates only those candidates in contested races. CCNM prepared and distributed a brief candidate survey and consolidated the responses of candidates in this report. The survey questions pertained to the non-negotiable moral evils that have plunged our nation into a deep moral crisis: legalized abortion, euthanasia, same sex marriage, human cloning, and the destruction of human embryos for research; as well as denying conscience protection of individuals and entities.

Candidates were rated based on their responses to the survey, a review of the candidates’ campaign material, speeches, press interviews, public statements, political party platform and voting records as applicable. The CCNM board and political action committee also reviewed voter guides published by other pro-life and pro-family organizations, consulted with trusted pro-life/pro-family congressmen, and knowledgeable conservative citizens in districts around the state. Candidates whose responses and/or record (votes, statements, speeches) were in accord with Catholic moral principles were endorsed. In instances where a candidate’s record and statements are mostly in line with Catholic moral teaching but with exceptions while his/her opponent’s record shows an anti-life voting record and allegiance, we accept the counsel and wisdom of faithful Church leaders including Cardinal John O’Connor (r.i.p), Archbishops John Myers and Charles Chaput, and Fr. Frank Pavone, national director of Priests for Life, who remind Catholic voters that “Where every candidate endorses positions contrary to non-negotiable principles, choose the candidate likely to do the least harm. If several are equal, evaluate them based on their views on other, lesser issues.” For more information on the principles of Catholic voting, please go to CCNM resources at CatholicsVoteCatholic.com.
