NRDC Action Fund Endorses 51 House, Senate Incumbents

WASHINGTON (September 20, 2023) – The NRDC Action Fund, a national environmental organization, today issued its first U.S. House and U.S. Senate endorsements of the 2024 political cycle, backing 51 incumbents whose clean energy advocacy is helping to advance and defend historic federal action on climate change in partnership with President Joe Biden.

“Wresting control of the House from the current fossil fuel-obsessed majority starts with supporting these climate champions. They are working hard to grow jobs, boost domestic renewable energy, lower energy costs, protect their communities, and keep America competitive in the global transition to a clean energy economy,” said Kevin S. Curtis, executive director of the NRDC Action Fund. “These Senate incumbents are standing up to fossil fuel lobbyists who desperately want to stop clean energy progress and keep us dependent on dirty fuels in perpetuity. We are proud to endorse these candidates for reelection as they fight for a healthier future for their constituents and all Americans.”

While the NRDC Action Fund expects to endorse dozens more candidates before November 2024, its first federal endorsement slate of the cycle includes:
