Washington, D.C. — In response to Senator Gillibrand’s announcement that she would withdraw from the Democratic primary, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) issued the following statement from SVP of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“We commend Senator Gillibrand for her hard-fought campaign and her ambitious climate proposals. The Senator never missed an opportunity to highlight the devastating impacts climate change is having on communities across the country and rightfully called out the crisis for what it is: the most serious threat our nation faces. We look forward to continuing to work with Senator Gillibrand as she keeps fighting the good fight in the Senate.”
