LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS ACTION FUND AND CALIFORNIA LEAGUE OF CONSERVATION VOTERS ENDORSE KATIE PORTER FOR CONGRESS

Katie Porter is running to unseat Republican Mimi Walters who boasts an abysmal 4% lifetime LCV Score

IRVINE - The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund and the California League of Conservation Voters today announced their endorsement of Katie Porter, the Democratic Nominee in California’s 45th Congressional District.

"We are proud to endorse Katie Porter in her race to unseat Rep. Mimi Walters," said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. "Walters has a 4% lifetime League of Conservation scores - one of the lowest in California. Walters supports the Trump administration's plan to open up Orange County waters to offshore drilling, risking devastating oil spills. That's why we need to work hard to elect Katie Porter who will always protect Orange County's air, water, and beaches."

"We stand with Katie Porter, a fierce environmental advocate who will fight to invest in renewable energy development and save important environmental protections," said California League of Conservation Voters Political Director James Johnson. "Katie will never waver when it comes to who she fights for. While her opponent has taken over $200,000 from oil and gas interests, Katie refuses to take a dime from oil companies and will fight any efforts to allow offshore oil drilling off the coast of Orange County."

“Our community values the environment and deserves a champion for our air, water, and beaches, not another vote for big oil,” said CA-45 Democratic Nominee Katie Porter. “I am proud to have the support of leading environmental protection organizations like the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund and the California League of Conservation Voters.”

Katie is running one of the most competitive races in the country and was named to the DCCC’s Red to Blue program in June.

Recent polling shows that with nearly three months to go, Democrats have a unique opportunity to flip California’s traditionally Republican 45th congressional district and that Katie Porter has a clear path to victory over unpopular incumbent Mimi Walters.

Katie Porter is a UC Irvine law professor and nationally-renowned consumer advocate who held Wall Street banks accountable for ripping off California consumers and homeowners during the financial crisis. Katie refuses to take a dime from Corporate PACs and, in Congress, she will always stand up to the powerful special interests and leaders of both parties – starting with Donald Trump – to do what’s right for Orange County families. Katie lives in Irvine with her three children.
