A group of veteran political organizers have launched a super-PAC to support Democrats who make climate change a top priority.
“Climate Hawks Vote” registered with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) late last week.
Co-founder RL Miller tells E2-Wire that advocates aren’t satisfied with Democrats who make climate a second-tier issue, and “Climate Hawks Vote” stands ready to get involved in primary and general election fights.
“We’re seeking to elect leaders willing to take on the greatest challenge facing the next few generations of humanity. Too many Democratic politicians consider climate to be just another issue bubbling below the surface of top priorities, and too many Democrats are willing to excuse Democratic politicians who tout their states’ coal and oil resources as long as they’re good on other issues,” Miller said in an email.
