LCV to invest $1 million in defeating Jason Lewis and other climate change deniers

The League of Conservation Voters Victory Fund (LCV) will spend $1 million to defeat two congressmen with terrible records on environmental issues. The effort will target, Jason “Mini-Trump” Lewis,  the opponent of Victory-endorsed candidate Angie Craig. Jason Lewis has a long record of ignoring facts, science and evidence and peddling outlandishly false claims on climate change.  The race remains close less than two months before the election.
While Angie vows to address climate change and create renewable energy jobs, Lewis claims one “nasty winter” is evidence climate change is not real, and is critical of plans to move toward renewable energy. But his ignorance extends well-beyond climate change. Lewis has called young women “non-thinking” because of their support for abortion and marriage equality, said trans students using bathrooms is an “abomination,” and implied slavery should be legal and that he would be fine with it.
“Lewis is the spitting image of a ‘mini-Trump’, and makes the same sorts of outlandish claims,” said LCV’s Clay Schroers. “We’re ready to bring the fight against climate science denial and Big Polluters allies to the House, and are committed to defeating these two candidates.”
