Washington D.C. – LCV Victory Fund congratulates Sheldon Whitehouse on winning his reelection as U.S. Senator for Rhode Island. Environmental donors contributed over $275,000 to Whitehouse’s campaign via GiveGreen.

“Voters in Rhode Island and across the country want real climate action, and we’re thrilled that Senator Whitehouse will remain a crucial leader in that fight,” said Gene Karpinski, LCV President. “His tireless advocacy on behalf of our planet and our communities is more important than ever before.”

GiveGreen — a partnership between LCV Victory Fund, NextGen America and the NRDC Action Fund PAC that helps grassroots donors directly contribute to pro-environment candidates — raised a record $21 million for the 2018 cycle.

LCV Action endorsed Whitehouse because of his longtime dedication to our environment.
