Friends of the Earth Action endorses Charles Booker, progressive Democrat running for U.S. Senate (KY)
WASHINGTON – Friends of the Earth Action announced its endorsement today of Charles Booker, a progressive candidate running for the Democratic nomination for Kentucky’s U.S. Senate seat. If Booker wins, he will face Mitch McConnell in the general election.
Ariel Moger, political coordinator with Friends of the Earth Action, issued the following statement on behalf of the organization:
Mitch McConnell is a corrupt corporate shill whose time in Congressional leadership should have expired long ago. McConnell has consistently sided with corporate interests and big polluters instead of protecting people and the planet. Even as our country grapples with coronavirus, McConnell is more concerned with ramming unqualified conservative judges through the Senate than giving suffering Americans any relief.
Charles Booker is a true progressive who will emphatically fight for a Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and economic justice. He is exactly the type of leader we need in Congress and we know that he would be the best person to represent the great state of Kentucky. Friends of the Earth Action is proud to endorse Charles Booker and we urge voters in Kentucky to send him to Congress.
