PA-Sen: McGinty Picks Up League of Conservation Voters Endorsement
The League of Conservation Voters Action Fund officially endorsed McGinty today, saying that she “brings a lifetime of expertise and commitment to the fight to protect Pennsylvania”.
“From her work with then-Senator Al Gore to reauthorize the Clean Air Act to helping make Pennsylvania a leader in solar and wind energy,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski, pointing out her work as both an aide to the former vice president, as well as her work as the Pennsylvania Secretary of Environmental Protection.
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of the LCV Action Fund and have a partner committed to addressing our environmental future,” McGinty responded. “There is no question that climate change presents a serious global threat to our health, economic well-being and national security and it is time to move towards a clean energy economy. In the Senate, I will lead the way to a healthier and safer environment and work to pass commonsense climate protections with investments in energy efficiency and clean energy.”
McGinty is running against former Congressman Joe Sestak and Braddock Mayor John Fetterman in the Senate Democratic primary. Recent polls from both Franklin & Marshall and Harper show the race is very much up grabs.
