Driving Force Action Launches with Focus on November Elections, EV Mandates

Driving Force Action

From the SEMA Washington, D.C., office

Driving Force Action (DFA) is ramping up efforts to counter President Biden's electric vehicle (EV) mandates by focusing on key battleground states in November's upcoming high-stakes elections. A project of SEMA, DFA's mission is to engage voters nationwide to elevate the issue of EV mandates and support candidates who believe in the freedom of choice for American car buyers rather than federal government imposition. 

A significant victory for DFA came recently when Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin announced that the state would no longer follow California's EV mandate, which would have required all new cars sold in Virginia to be fully electric by 2035. This announcement came after a year-long campaign by DFA to roll back the EV mandate in Virginia. 

Driving Force Action, established as a political action committee in 2023, is now broadening its campaign message nationwide in preparation for the 2024 general election. In 2023, DFA's focus on Virginia elections resulted in a 75% success rate for its endorsed candidates.
