Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today the first round of non-incumbent endorsements in the 2022 election cycle for the U.S. Senate — six candidates in key states. The endorsements include Cheri Beasley (D-NC), Charles Booker (D-KY), Val Demings (D-FL), Abby Finkenauer (D-IA), Lucas Kunce (D-MO), and Peter Welch (D-VT).
“LCV Action Fund is all in to defend and expand the pro-environment majority in the Senate, and we are thrilled to support this diverse group of climate champions for election to the U.S. Senate. We know these leaders will deliver on transformational climate action, clean energy, jobs, democracy, and justice 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 prioritizes the health and well-being of communities over polluter profits and fights to protect our democracy. These candidates representing states from across the country – and particularly the south and midwest – have been strong advocates for climate policies centered in equity, and we are so excited to continue working with them as senators to build a clean energy future powered by millions of good-paying union jobs.”
LCV Action Fund’s other endorsements to date for the 2022 election cycle can be found here. LCV Action Fund is committed to helping to protect and expand the pro-environment Senate and House majorities and will endorse additional candidates in the months to come.
