Raised/Contributed by the LCV Action Fund's Give Green

LCV Action Fund’s GiveGreen, which is the largest “bundling” program in the country devoted exclusively to raising money for pro-environment candidates, is a critical tool for showing the power of environmental donors and getting candidates the resources they need to compete.

California 7th House District

LCV Program: $460,000

Rep. Dan Lungren, who had an LCV lifetime score of just 4 percent, questioned whether climate change is predominantly caused by human activity. LCV partnered with California LCV on ten flights of mail to nearly 90,000 households. Additionally, LCV put up billboards in his district linking Lungren to other extreme climate deniers like Rush Limbaugh and Sarah Palin. In one of the last House races in the country to be called, LCV-endorsed challenger Ami Bera defeated Lungren by roughly 5,000 votes.
