LCV was proud to endorse Independent former Gov. Angus King as the most viable pro-environment candidate in the race. A rash of outside money from special interests in the fall made this a more competitive race than expected. In mid-October, LCV partnered with Sierra Club Independent Action to launch a TV buy in the Portland media market, which covers 70 percent of the state.
