Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will support sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of Ken Harbaugh for Congress in Ohio’s 7th Congressional District.

“Ken Harbaugh is committed to protecting clean air and clean water for all,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “We are excited to endorse his campaign and look forward to working with him to invest in Ohio’s clean energy economy and bring sustainable family-wage jobs to the Buckeye State.”

“My children and I camp in our Ohio parks and we fish together in our Ohio lakes and streams,” said Ken Harbaugh. “The people of this state deserve clean land and air and drinkable water. I firmly believe that we can achieve these goals while building a strong, sustainable economy and bringing good-paying jobs back to Ohio. I’m honored to have the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund, and I look forward to safeguarding our state’s natural resources for future generations.”

Ken Harbaugh is a former Navy pilot and Ohioan who believes duty and honor are promises. He grew up in a military family, the son and grandson of Air Force combat pilots. When it was his turn, Ken joined the Navy where he flew reconnaissance missions in the Middle East and off of North Korea. Following his naval service, he earned his law degree and co-founded a nonprofit to empower military men and women to keep serving in their communities. Ken is the recent President of Team Rubicon Global, a disaster relief organization that has helped train over 50,000 veterans to deploy in emergency response teams in Ohio and around the world. Ken is not a politician. He’s a public servant who believes in country over party, service above self, and opportunity for all Ohioans. In Congress, Ken will work with anyone from either party to help people with pre-existing conditions, to bring good-paying jobs back to his state, and to ensure that Ohio’s natural resources are protected for future generations.
