Washington D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect pro-environment candidates, announced today the endorsement of Ruben Gallego for election to the U.S. Senate representing Arizona.
“From his leadership to protect our public lands and waters to his advocacy for good-paying clean energy jobs, Representative Ruben Gallego has relentlessly fought for environmental justice and has championed the environment as a top priority during his time in Congress,” said LCV Action Fund Vice President of Political Affairs Craig Auster. “Ruben Gallego is a tremendous advocate for our clean energy future and for a more just and equitable democracy. With Arizona on the frontlines of the climate crisis, LCV Action Fund is thrilled to endorse Gallego’s campaign for the Senate to continue to fight for a sustainable future for all.”
“Our communities in Arizona deserve leadership like Representative Gallego who will put people above big polluters and special interests, and has a proven record of fighting for communities of color and low-wealth communities who suffer the most from extreme weather, pollution, and environmental injustice,” said Chispa Arizona Executive Director Vianey Olivarria. “After the hottest summer on record, we must take every action to combat the climate crisis at the scale science demands to meet our climate goals. Ruben Gallego will continue to fight for clean energy, jobs, and justice, and we’re proud to support his campaign for Senate.”
“This unprecedented summer in Arizona — the hottest on record with dangerous stretches of extreme heat — made clear why we need bold leaders in the Senate who are willing to address climate change head-on,” said Representative Ruben Gallego. “I’m proud to be endorsed by LCV Action Fund and will continue to fight alongside them as we work to secure Arizona’s water future, preserve our public lands, and protect Arizonans from rising temperatures. Together, we’ll work with everyone — Republicans and Democrats alike — to deliver common-sense solutions and build a better future for the generations to come.”
