We do not endorse mediocre Democrats, no matter how vehemently a Republican opponent may deny climate science. We only endorse when we are convinced that the candidate will commit to strong climate action.
In the 2016 cycle, we endorsed a slate of 13 candidates for US Congress, raising $38,000 in direct contributions and making $50,000 in independent expenditures. Eight of nine of our general election candidates won, including our signature candidate, Nanette Barragán. In addition, we endorsed Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic presidential primary based on an overwhelming membership vote and promoted his climate-hawk platform.
