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.

Tammy Baldwin (D)

Tommy Thompson (R)

Wisconsin Senate Race

LCV Program: $1 Million

The Wisconsin senate race was one of LCV’s late investments. The hard-fought race between Rep. Tammy Baldwin and former Gov. Tommy Thompson remained one of the closest campaigns in the country. With a lifetime LCV score of 97 percent, we knew that Baldwin would be a champion in the Senate. In the final week of the campaign, we launched two ads: one positive ad touting Baldwin’s leadership on clean energy, which aired in the Madison media market, and one comparative ad, which aired in the swing Milwaukee media market.
