FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 26, 2018

Daytona Beach – Today, Nancy Soderberg, former U.S. Ambassador and FL-06 Democratic nominee, announced the endorsement of the Sierra Club. This endorsement highlights Soderberg’s commitment to protecting the environment.

“The Sierra Club is proud to endorse Nancy Soderberg for Florida’s 6th Congressional District,” Steve Wonderly, chair of the Volusia-Flagler chapter of the Sierra Club, said. “Ambassador Soderberg understands the urgency of protecting Florida and the nation from the devastating effects of climate change, and how a move to clean energy will create good-paying jobs.  As a U.S. Representative, Nancy Soderberg will be a strong voice for environmental protection, clean air, and clean water.”

“I’m honored to receive the endorsement of the Sierra Club,” Nancy Soderberg said. “I have long been an advocate for sensible environmental policies. When I was in the White House, we were beginning international negotiations to bring down levels of CO2 emissions. Protecting our environment and addressing the urgent issue of climate change will be among my top priorities when I get to Congress.”

This endorsement builds on the momentum behind Soderberg’s campaign after polls show 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, Florida AFL-CIO, and League of Conservation Voters Action Fund.

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.
