Climate Hawks Vote list of endorsed progressive candidates
Climate Hawks Vote list of candidates
Climate Hawks Vote does not endorse Clinton or Trump. Like JackpineRadicals, they are dedicated to ending climate change and endorse progressives across the country.
An email from one of the leaders at Climate Hawk Votes was among the leaked Podesta emails. He told Podesta how disappointed he was in Podesta putting his name on a bunch of screen shots instead of actual policy regarding climate change.
Podesta responded in part: “What offended me was that Bernie pissed all over Obama’s extensive diplomacy that led to a hopeful outcome in Paris. It’s easy to promise the moon. It’s a lot harder to deliver.”
From Climate Hawks Vote
What we consider in issuing endorsements: First and foremost, a candidate’s public statements regarding climate change. Do you mention specific climate change action in your stump speech? Did you show up at a People’s Climate March? Do you have a thoughtful statement on your website? We also look at viability, although we will back longshots when we find a compelling reason to do so.
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 Congress.
We like primaries.
Climate Hawks Vote does not accept contributions from fossil-fuel corporations, executives, or lobbyists. We are a federal Super PAC, which means that we are an independent expenditure committee and can’t endorse in state/local races. We do network with others on the lookout for climate hawks who can think globally and lead locally.
