WASHINGTON, D.C.— The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld tonight congratulates Tammy Duckworth on her victory in the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate from Illinois. LCV Action Fund endorsed Tammy Duckworth for Senate because she has been a strong advocate for our environment, as reflected most recently in her 89 percent score on LCV’s 2015 National Environmental Scorecard.
“Tonight’s strong primary win shows that the people of Illinois are lining up behind Tammy Duckworth, a pro-environment, pro-climate action champion. Tammy Duckworth will provide the strong, consistent leadership on the environment that Illinois deserves in both its senators. Tonight was a huge step forward for Duckworth toward the U.S. Senate so she can continue her unwavering fight in Washington to grow Illinois’ clean energy economy, protect public health, and take on climate change.”
