Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund congratulates U.S. Senator Tammy Duckworth (IL-Sen), Representatives Sean Casten (IL-06), Bill Foster (IL-11), Lauren Underwood (IL-14) and U.S. House candidates Delia Ramirez (IL-03) and Nikki Budzinski (IL-13) on their victories in their respective Democratic primary elections in Illinois. Additionally, LCV Action Fund congratulates U.S. Senator Michael Bennet (CO-Sen), U.S. Representatives Diana DeGette (CO-01), Joe Neguse (CO-02), Jason Crow (CO-06), Brittany Pettersen (CO-07), and Yadira Caraveo (CO-08) on their victories in their respective Democratic primary elections in Colorado.

“Congratulations to these climate and environmental justice leaders on their victories tonight,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “Each of these candidates for Congress have and will continue to fight for the health and well-being of communities in Illinois and Colorado, prioritize people over profits, and build our clean energy economy with millions of good-paying jobs. We are thrilled to see these true advocates for a just and equitable future come out victorious in the primary, and we look forward to doing everything we can to help make sure they win again in November.”

Last week, separately from LCV Action fund, LCV Victory Fund launched  two digital ads in support of Rep. Sean Casten in Illinois’ 6th Congressional District, which ran through the June 28 primary.
