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.

Sherrod Brown (D)

Josh Mandel (R)

Ohio Senate Race

Sen. Sherrod Brown was facing Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel in one of the cycle’s most costly Senate races. While Brown, with an impressive lifetime LCV score of 93 percent, has been a strong advocate for building Ohio’s clean energy economy, Mandel easily earned a spot on LCV’s Dirty Dozen by fiercely opposing vital EPA clean air safeguards and denying scientific consensus on climate change. Despite the fact that outside groups spent more than $20 million attacking Brown, much of it focused on environmental issues, the senator was re-elected by a 5-point margin.
