Today, the League of Conservation Voters endorsed President Obama for re-election in a joint announcement with the Sierra Club, Clean Water Action, and Environment America. LCV Victory Fund simultaneously released a web video highlight President Obama’s record of fighting Big Oil and investing in clean energy.
“Elections are about choices – and for those who care about building a clean energy economy and confronting the climate crisis, the choice is clear: President Obama is a clean energy champion and Mitt Romney is a climate denier,” said LCV President Gene Karpinski. “While President Obama has fought to put Americans in control of our energy future, Mitt Romney and his Big Oil buddies would take us back to the failed dirty energy policies of the past.”
The Obama campaign released a statement to the media shortly after the release of the endorsement.
“We’re honored to have the support of the Sierra Club, the League of Conservation Voters, and Clean Water Action and Environment America, and we look forward to working with them throughout the campaign,” campaign manager Jim Messina. “President Obama is fighting for an economy that’s built to last, and that’s why he’s investing in clean energy and responsibly developing our natural resources in a way that creates good jobs here in America, protects the environment, and reduces our dependence on foreign oil.”
