Endorsement: Tom Perriello for Governor

Climate Hawks Vote announces its first and possibly only endorsement for 2017: Tom Perriello for Governor of Virginia.

This is the group’s first-ever endorsement in a state race, and is driven by Perriello’s political courage in refusing money from Dominion Power and standing up to two fracked natural gas pipelines proposed for the state. The group took this step only after first surveying its Virginia members. Virginia climate hawks voted overwhelmingly for Perriello – 80% for him, 9% for Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam, and 11% for “no endorsement.”

“The survey demonstrates extraordinary grassroots support for Tom Perriello,” says RL Miller, cofounder of Climate Hawks Vote. “And it shows that Perriello’s sharp contrast with Northam on climate and clean energy is resonating with Virginia voters alarmed by Donald Trump’s efforts to send Virginia back to a coal-fired, polluted era.”
