Want to send a message to Fred Upton, the chair of the House Energy & Commerce Committee (also known as Big Oil's bought-and-paid-for Representative)? Help us get out the climate vote in Michigan!
We're endorsing Shenna Bellows for Maine-Senate, two Michigan politicians - Gary Peters for Senate and Paul Clements for the 6th District (Kalamazoo, Benton Harbor, and southwestern Michigan) - and Scott Peters for California's 52d district (San Diego), and backing up those endorsements with field operatives. We've also endorsed Jeanne Shaheen for reelection in New Hampshire-Senate; in California, Lois Capps, Heidi Hall, Mike Honda, and Ted Lieu for Congress; and Rick Weiland, Jeff Merkley, and Tom Udall for Senate seats in South Dakota, Oregon, and New Mexico. Our organizers provided Brian Schatz' margin of victory in Hawaii's Senate primary, and we helped Ruben Gallego beat a coal-powered opponent in AZ-07.
Our goal is to elect climate hawk leaders - those who prioritize and speak on the climate crisis. Simply put, climate change is the greatest threat facing the next few generations of humanity, not just another Democratic issue, but too many politicians are afraid to talk about it.
Waffling on carbon pollution and voting for fossil fuels should be as unacceptable as voting against a woman's right to choose. We don't tolerate elected officials and candidates taking money from tobacco companies who profit from human suffering and death; we shouldn't tolerate them taking money from coal, oil, and gas companies whose business plan is to cook the planet.
We're a grassroots-funded organization seeking to elect only those politicians who show leadership on climate change. Join us.
