WASHINGTON, D.C.—The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld congratulates Patrick Murphy (FL-Sen), Stephanie Murphy (FL-7), Charlie Crist (FL-13), Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) and Frederica Wilson (FL-24) for their victories in the Florida Democratic primary:
“We congratulate Patrick Murphy, Stephanie Murphy, Charlie Crist, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Frederica Wilson for advancing to the general election tonight. Florida is already seeing the impacts of climate change such as rising sea levels, and we need elected officials who are going to stand up to Big Polluters and tackle this crisis head on. These candidates are just the champions Floridians need to combat climate change, preserve the Everglades and protect the state’s beaches from offshore drilling and other threats for generations to come. LCV Action Fund looks forward to continuing to help Patrick Murphy, Stephanie Murphy, Charlie Crist, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Frederica Wilson defeat their extreme anti-environment opponents this November.”
About LCV Action Fund
The League of Conservation Voters Action Fund (LCVAF), the connected federal political action committee (PAC) of the League of Conservation Voters, works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental laws and policies, and defeat those who stand in the way of progress. Since the 1994 election cycle, LCVAF has helped elect and re-elect 69 U.S. Senators and 306 members of the U.S. House of Representatives. In the 2013-2014 election cycle, LCVAF endorsed over 70 candidates and raised and donated almost $6 million dollars via GiveGreen. Over the last several years, our efforts have also helped elevate climate change and clean energy as critical issues in key elections.
