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.

LCV Program: $100,000

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. Our ad contrasted King’s leadership on clean energy and global warming with his main opponent Charlie Summers, who denies climate science and opposes clean energy.
