League of Conservation Voters Action Fund Endorses Nancy Soderberg for Congress


September 24, 2018

Daytona Beach – Today, Nancy Soderberg, former U.S. Ambassador and FL-06 Democratic nominee, announced the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund. This endorsement highlights Soderberg’s commitment to fighting for sound environmental policies.

“Nancy Soderberg has built a distinguished career in service to our country and has a record of working to fight climate change, one of the biggest threats to Florida’s future,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “Healthy rivers and beaches are critical to Florida’s economy and way of life, and Nancy Soderberg will champion clean water and fight efforts to open our coasts to offshore drilling. We are proud to endorse her campaign because we know she will always stand with Florida communities and work to restore America to global leadership in the effort against the climate crisis.”

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund,” said Nancy Soderberg. “I’ve been working on the urgent issue of climate change since my time in the White House, when we were beginning international negotiations to bring down levels of CO2 emissions. Protecting the environment is one of the top concerns I hear from voters in my community. I’m running for Congress to make sure Washington takes this urgent issue seriously.”

This endorsement builds on the momentum behind Soderberg’s campaign after a poll shows this is a tight race and after crossing the $2 million fundraising mark. She has garnered support from local leaders, national figures, grassroots groups, and local and national organizations, including five members of the Florida Congressional delegation, St. Johns County Environmental Caucus, Florida Young Democrats, Indivisible United Florida 6th District, Volusia United Educators, Florida LGBTA Democratic Caucus, AFSCME Florida, and the Florida AFL-CIO.

Soderberg’s momentum also includes being named to the DCCC’s Red to Blue List, and earning endorsements from Vice President Joe Biden, Gold Star Father Khizr Khan, Emily’s List, Orlando Sentinel, End Citizens United, Planned Parenthood Action Fund, NewDem’s PAC, Foreign Policy for America, NARAL, Serve America, Equality PAC, among others.
