What we consider in issuing endorsements: First and foremost, a candidate's public statements regarding climate change. Do you mention specific climate change action in your stump speech? Did you show up at a People's Climate March? Do you have a thoughtful statement on your website? We also look at viability, although we will back longshots when we find a compelling reason to do so.
We do not endorse mediocre Democrats, no matter how vehemently a Republican opponent may deny climate science. We only endorse when we are convinced that the candidate will commit to strong climate action in Congress.
We like primaries.
We are a federal SuperPAC, which means that we are an independent expenditure committee and can't endorse in state/local races. We do network with others on the lookout for climate hawks who can think globally and lead locally.
