Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today the first round of endorsements in the 2022 election cycle for the U.S. Senate — nine senators in key states. The endorsements include Senators Michael Bennet (D-CO), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Tammy Duckworth (D-IL), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Patty Murray (D-WA), Alex Padilla (D-CA), Brian Schatz (D-HI), Rev. Raphael Warnock (D-GA), and Ron Wyden (D-OR).
“LCV Action Fund is all in to defend the pro-environment majority in the Senate, and we are thrilled to support these climate and environmental champions for re-election. We know these leaders will deliver on transformational climate, clean energy, jobs and justice legislation for all communities,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “It is more important than ever that we have a Congress that listens to science and facts and prioritizes the health and well-being of communities over polluter profits. These senators representing diverse states all across the country have been strong advocates for climate policies centered in equity, and we are so excited to continue working with them to build a clean energy future powered by millions of good-paying union jobs.”
Last year, voters turned out to put a climate champion in the White House, flip the Senate to a pro-environment majority and protect the pro-environment majority in the House. In 2022, LCV Action Fund is committed to helping re-elect these members of Congress who have done so much to stand up for the environment and public health. LCV Action Fund will spend the next year and a half working to protect and expand the pro-environment Senate and House majorities and will be endorsing additional candidates in the months to come.
