Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced a slate of new endorsements in the 2024 election cycle for the U.S. House — thirteen candidates in key districts. The endorsements include U.S. Representatives Julia Brownley (CA-26), Jimmy Gomez (CA-34), Scott Peters (CA-50), Lucy McBath (GA-07), Haley Stevens (MI-11), Jamaal Bowman (NY-16), Paul Tonko (NY-20) and Sylvia Garcia (TX-29) and candidates Andrei Cherny (AZ-01), Christina Bohannan (IA-01), Monica Tranel (MT-01), Tony Vargas (NE-02), and Gabe Amo (RI-01).
“LCV Action Fund is just getting started on our efforts to support environmental champions running for Congress, and are thrilled to endorse these candidates who will put people over polluters and work to protect our right to a free and fair democracy,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “In the wake of the hottest summer on record, devastating extreme weather events across the country, and more attempts than ever to subvert our most fundamental rights, we must have members of Congress who will prioritize all of our communities, especially those who have been historically excluded from our democracy and who bear the brunt of climate impacts and toxic pollution. We are proud to support leaders who will prioritize the fight against the climate crisis and environmental injustice, and fight for a more just and equitable democracy.”
