Washington, D.C. – The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) congratulates Representative Chellie Pingree (ME-01) on her win in Maine.

“Chellie Pingree is the climate and environmental justice champion Mainers need in Congress, and LCV is thrilled to continue working with her for a safe, healthy clean energy future,” said LCV President Gene Karpinski. “Representative Pingree will continue to be an outspoken leader for climate action and will work hard to protect Mainers’ right to a healthy environment. We look forward to working alongside Representative Pingree as we fight for environmental justice for all and build opportunities for good paying, clean jobs for Mainers and the nation.”

Environmental donors contributed nearly $135,000 to Maine candidates via GiveGreen. GiveGreen — a partnership between LCV Victory Fund and NRDC Action Votes that helps grassroots donors directly contribute to pro-environment candidates — raised a midterm record $26.9 million for the 2022 cycle.

Representative Pingree’s win demonstrates that leaning into environmental issues is both good policy and good politics.
