Campaigning on Bold Climate Action Helped Boost Biden to Victory
EDF Action and EDF Action Votes spent over $3 million supporting Joe Biden’s election
(Washington, D.C. – November 7, 2020) EDF Action congratulates President-elect Joe Biden on his victory.
“Americans have embraced science over absurdity and unity over division to help elect Joe Biden as our next President,” said EDF Action President Joe Bonfiglio. “Voters just gave our country and our planet a fighting chance to solve the climate crisis. Biden’s vision for rebuilding our country’s fragile economy by investing in clean energy and addressing environmental injustice was central to his campaign and clearly won him votes this year. The exit polls showed that two-thirds of Americans see climate change as a serious problem. We are proud to support the Biden-Harris ticket in this election, because we know their leadership will give us a chance for a safer and healthier world.”
EDF Action Votes spent over $3 million on television and digital ads as well as a mail and Get Out the Vote programs to help propel Joe Biden to victory.
