Washington D.C. – LCV Victory Fund congratulates Sherrod Brown for winning reelection to the U.S. Senate. LCV Victory Fund invested more than $800,000 in the U.S. Senate race, primarily on door-to-door canvassing through the New American Jobs Fund.
“Sherrod Brown works hard for our environment and our economy,” said Gene Karpinski, LCV President. “He’s a champion for clean energy jobs and protecting the Great Lakes, and we look forward to continuing to work with him and the entire Ohio delegation.”
Brown’s opponent, Jim Renacci, was named to LCV Victory Fund’s iconic Dirty Dozen because of his record of siding with polluters over Ohio. The New American Jobs Fund field program — a partnership with the United Steelworkers (USW) Works — knocked on more than 175,000 doors and sent over 90,000 pieces of mail supporting Brown.
LCV’s GreenRoots member mobilization program also turned out voters for both Brown and 1st congressional district candidate Aftab Pureval as part of a nationwide field program that engaged nearly 1,500 volunteers.
Environmental donors contributed over $925,000 to Ohio candidates, including over $325,000 to Brown’s campaign via GiveGreen. 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 Fund endorsed Brown and Pureval because of their commitments to fighting for clean air and water. LCV Action Fund also endorsed Ken Harbaugh and Danny O’Connor.
Conservation Ohio and related entities invested $3.3 million to elect Richard Cordray governor and support a slate of pro-conservation candidates.
