Washington, D.C. – LCV Victory Fund announced a $550,000 investment in support of Donna Edwards in the Democratic primary to represent Maryland’s 4th Congressional District. The spending will go to two new digital ads launching today and a direct mail program slated to begin dropping in voters’ mailboxes next week. The ads highlight Edwards’ record as a proven Democrat committed to standing up to big polluters and the NRA, as well as key endorsements from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senator Elizabeth Warren.

WATCH: “Proven Democrat”

WATCH: “Stands Up”

“Donna Edwards will stand up to the oil companies that are jacking up gas prices and polluting our air, fight for stronger gun laws, and deliver progress for Prince George’s County – she has the record to prove it,” said Pete Maysmith, LCV Victory Fund SVP of Campaigns. “The last year has made it clearer than ever that we need strong pro-environment leaders like Edwards in Congress who know how to make deals and get things done.”

During her four previous terms in Congress, former Rep. Edwards earned a stellar 97% lifetime LCV score for her pro-environment votes and fought for increased public transportation, tax incentives for conducting scientific research, building green infrastructure for clean water and more. She’s been an outspoken climate champion for her entire career.

LCV Victory Fund first announced it would back Edwards in her primary in early May, as part of the group’s commitment to supporting pro-environment women of color candidates. LCV Action Fund endorsed Edwards’ 2022 Congressional campaign in January.
