Texas League of Conservation Voters PAC committed to electing two new pro-conservation legislators to the Texas Senate on Election Day, and we came really close. Wendy Davis defeated Senator Kim Brimer for District 10 in Tarrant County, and Chris Bell landed in a runoff with Joan Huffman for District 17.
We’ve got to send Chris Bell to the Senate, and we can do it by helping him win his runoff.
Chris Bell is committed to clean air and clean energy for the Gulf Coast and for Texas. He’s going to deliver on Ike recovery efforts, and he’s going to be an advocate for addressing climate change which makes hurricanes bigger and worse. His opponent will deliver more of what we’ve had too much of for too long: support for anti-conservation policies that help the polluters and the insurance companies get richer.
Texas needs to create the green collar jobs that will build our future clean energy economy. Joan Huffman won’t be able to do that. Chris Bell is the right person for the job.
Help the League’s PAC send Chris Bell to the Senate. Senator Bell will be a voice for common sense, pro-conservation change in Texas. Please give now.
