I hope this matters.
Just two years ago, the League of Conservation Voters declared that Sen. Susan Collins, Republican from Maine, "is an extremely important ally in the fight to protect the environment and public health. […] Her leadership is more important now than ever, and we are grateful that she continues to stand up to big polluters by supporting climate action and protections for the air we breathe, the water we drink and the lands we cherish."
What a difference two years, two new Supreme Court justices, and countless Senate votes backing Donald Trump makes. This time around, the LCV is endorsing Democratic candidate Sara Gideon, one of a handful of hopeful challengers to Collins. "From her time as a town councilor to her tenure as Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, Speaker Gideon has been a leader fighting the climate crisis, promoting clean energy, & banning offshore drilling in Maine," LCV tweeted in their announcement.
