League of Conservation Voters Statement on the 2006 Midterm Election Results

Contact: Kristin Lee, (202) 785-8683 or November 8, 2006  

"The American people's vision of an energy future that is very different from current policies is the winner, and Big Oil is the big loser. The voters are usually way ahead of Washington and they proved it again tonight. Energy independence and the creation of a new energy economy was the singular domestic issue that cut across partisan, geographic and demographic lines. American want less dependence on oil and more on American ingenuity and the American work ethic to create new clean energy products and jobs, while at the same time enhancing our national security."
