Jon Ossoff is a seasoned foreign policy and anti-corruption advocate who will hold polluters accountable and fight to grow clean energy jobs.
He is a veteran of the Capitol Hill offices of Representatives Hank Johnson (GA-04) and John Lewis (GA-05), where he focused on national security and international affairs issues. Afterward, he took over as managing partner and CEO of Insight TWI, a nearly 30-year old investigative production company targeting corrupt public officials and organized crime for international news organizations. Ossoff narrowly lost the 2017 special election for Georgia’s 6th congressional district, where LCV Action Fund was one of his earliest endorsements. Underscoring his commitment to fighting for a clean energy future, Ossoff joined the Board of Directors of LCV’s state affiliate, Georgia Conservation Voters.
In the Senate, Ossoff will push for renewed U.S. leadership on tackling climate change by immediately supporting rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement and reversing Trump’s disastrous rollbacks of environmental safeguards. He will center science in his approach to policies and supports quickly transitioning to a clean energy economy while holding polluters accountable.
Ossoff joins the U.S. Senate after defeating Senator David Perdue, who earned a 3% lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In his own words:
“In the Senate, I’ll push for America to immediately re-enter the Paris Climate Accords, and I’ll support a clean energy plan to ensure that 100% of grid electricity produced in the United States by 2050 comes from energy sources that do not emit greenhouse gases.”
