Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund congratulates Summer Lee on her Democratic primary election victory for U.S. House representing Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District.

“ Summer Lee is exactly the kind of leader we need in Washington – an outspoken advocate for climate, environmental justice, and democracy,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “We congratulate Representative Lee on her primary victory last night and look forward to continuing to support her campaign through the general election.”

“Congratulations to Representative Summer Lee on her well-deserved primary victory,” said Conservation Pennsylvania Political Director Katie Blume. “She has been an outstanding advocate for climate and environmental justice in her district at the state level and we look forward to November so we can see her carry on that leadership in Congress.”

LCV Victory Fund invested $65,000 on a digital ad in support of Summer Lee (PA-12) leading up to the primary.

LCV Action Fund endorsed Summer Lee because of her record and commitment to fighting for both climate and racial justice for all communities.
