WASHINGTON – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) today launched a $200,000 mail program in the Massachusetts Senate race highlighting Scott Brown’s ties to Big Oil and his 278 votes against President Obama’s agenda, including the President’s efforts to save taxpayers billions by ending subsidies for Big Oil. The program includes four flights of mail to 150,000 households in the state. Combined with the large canvass LCV is running in the state, LCV plans to spend more than a million dollars in this Senate race.
“Scott Brown voted against President Obama 278 times, but Massachusetts voters only have to vote against him once to bring an end to Brown’s obstruction,” said Navin Nayak, LCV Senior Vice President for Campaigns.
LCV has already spent more than $700,000 in the Massachusetts Senate race. In August, LCV launched a grassroots field campaign to defeat Brown and elect Elizabeth Warren to the United States Senate. The field campaign is a grassroots effort that includes dozens of canvassers having face-to-face conversations with voters about Brown’s record of siding with Big Oil and Warren’s commitment to fighting for a clean energy future.
LCV canvassers have knocked on more than 100,000 doors across Amherst, Arlington, Bedford, Belchertown, Belmont, Brookline, Burlington, Cambridge, Chesterfield, Chicopee, Deerfield, Easthampton, Goshen, Granby, Greenfield, Hadley, Hatfield, Holyoke, Huntington, Lexington, Lincoln, Longmeadow, Malden, Medford, Melrose, Montague, Newton, Northampton, Pelham, Revere, Shelburne, Shutesbury, Somerville, South Hadley, Southamptom, Springfield, Wakefield, Waltham, Watertown, Wayland, Westhampton, Weston, West Springfield, Williamsburg and Winchester.
With a feeble 22% score, Brown has far and away the worst lifetime ranking of any member of Massachusetts’ Congressional delegation on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard, a non-partisan, nationally accepted yardstick used to rate members of Congress on environmental and clean energy issues.
