riends of the Earth Action today endorsed Ben Jealous for governor of Maryland. The endorsement was announced as part of a Facebook live conversation at the Maryland home of Friends of the Earth Action President Erich Pica.
Recently, Majority Forward, a dark money group closely associated with Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and affiliated super PAC Senate Majority PAC, purchased $4.5 million in advertising praising Sen. Joe Manchin (D –W.V.) for his attacks on clean water, according to reports from E&E News.
Jon Ossoff’s near victory in this conservative district shows that voters everywhere are rejecting Donald Trump’s radical agenda and the members of Congress who refuse to hold him accountable.
With this ad, a PAC affiliated with Minority Leader Schumer has undermined our fight to protect clean air and clean water.
Perriello’s commitment to progressive environmental, economic policies and social justice make him the best candidate to lead the Commonwealth of Virginia forward.
Congressman Jason Chaffetz’s decision not to seek reelection is a big victory for the Trump resistance over one of administration’s chief enablers.
Friends of the Earth Action is proud of Jon Ossoff’s impressive record of fighting for the environment and standing against corporations. In the House of Representatives, he will be a champion for clean energy development in Georgia and for protecting our air, land and water nationwide.
Any Democrat who rolls over and lets Mitch McConnell steal a Supreme Court seat for Donald Trump is dangerously out of touch with the popular resistance.
The work Jon Ossoff has done to expose corporate corruption and speak truth to power on Capitol Hill shows he is the strong progressive champion Georgia needs.
Friends of the Earth Action will continue to advance a strong progressive agenda and hold both parties accountable to it. In the meantime, those of us committed to resisting Trump and his extreme agenda will continue to look outside the Democratic Party for leadership.
