Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will support sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Dan Feehan for Congress in Minnesota’s 1st District.

“As a veteran and national security professional, Dan Feehan has a deep understanding of the serious threat climate change poses to our country,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “He will fight to make climate action a top priority in Congress and champion the growth of Minnesota’s clean energy economy. We are thrilled to endorse his campaign.”

“Climate change is a fundamental national and global security threat with moral and economic consequences,” said Dan Feehan. “The League of Conservation Voters is a trusted leader in the fight for sound environmental policies that combat this threat and promote clean water and air. I look forward to being their partner in this fight. In Congress, I will work to protect and preserve Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, and forests; and promote good-paying, clean energy jobs for working Minnesota families. Simply put, I will never stop fighting for our cherished land of 10,000 lakes.”

Dan Feehan is a fifth generation Minnesotan who grew up in Red Wing. After the September 11 terrorist attacks, Feehan signed up for the Army ROTC and from 2005 to 2009 was an active duty soldier who completed two tours of duty in Iraq. Feehan earned a Bronze Star, the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with Valor and the Ranger Tab. After graduate school, he became a White House Fellow to the Secretary of Defense and worked his way up to become the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense (Readiness). After finishing his service with the Obama administration, he and his family moved back to Minnesota, where he writes and conducts research on the military. In Congress, Feehan will prioritize addressing climate change as a national security threat and champion a clean energy jobs program for Minnesota.
