Mar 26, 2024

Washington D.C. – Today, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced the endorsement of Andy Kim for election to the U.S. Senate representing New Jersey.

“Representative Andy Kim has fought tirelessly for clean air, water, and energy, the largest investment ever in climate action through the Inflation Reduction Act, to protect our treasured coasts, and to strengthen our democracy throughout his time in Congress,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President for Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “He is truly a champion for a clean energy future and a more free and fair democracy for all. LCV Action Fund is thrilled to announce our endorsement for Andy Kim for Senate where we know he will continue to be a tremendous leader.”

“Andy Kim has been a critical ally in Congress as New Jersey leads the nation in building our clean energy economy,” said New Jersey League of Conservation Voters Executive Director Ed Potosnak. “New Jerseyans can be assured that in the Senate he will continue to advocate for protecting our coast, conserving our land, and a more just and equitable clean energy future for our state.”

“I’ll never forget watching my sons take some of their first steps on Jersey Shore beaches, or camping as a kid in the Pine Barrens. These beautiful, national treasures deserve to be protected for my kids and future generations to enjoy,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “I hope to continue protecting them and working to make sure New Jersey is a state that fights climate change, replenishes our beaches, and protects ecosystems that prop up our shore towns, businesses, and families across New Jersey. I’m grateful for LCVAF’s endorsement, and proud that they see in our campaign a movement that’s focused on people and protecting New Jersey’s beautiful landmarks for generations to come.”
