EDF Action and EDF Action Votes Congratulate Representative Susie Lee for Winning Reelection
Lowering Energy Costs and Creating Clean Energy Jobs Helped Push Representative Lee to Victory
(Washington, D.C. – November 12, 2022) EDF Action congratulates U.S. Representative Susie Lee (NV-03) for winning reelection.
“Voters sent a strong message by reelecting Susie Lee to Congress,” said EDF Action President David Kieve. “Lee’s record in Congress speaks for itself: working to lower energy costs for families, create good-paying clean energy jobs and ensure healthier communities. We were proud to support Susie Lee in her reelection bid and know she’ll continue to fight for Nevada families. We look forward to working with Representative Lee to continue making climate progress over the next two years.”
EDF Action Votes launched a $280,000 campaign targeting Latino voters with a digital ad and mail campaign in English and Spanish.
EDF Action had two on-the-ground organizers in Nevada working to mobilize climate activists for Representative Lee’s reelection campaign. This program was based in five states across the country: Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada and New Hampshire. Over 500 EDF Action members volunteered for candidates in close races by phone banking, letter writing, canvassing and joining virtual and in-person events.
As part of its largest-ever program to engage EDF Action members in critical campaigns, EDF Action also supported Susie Lee by deploying staff to Nevada. These staffers educated EDF Action members about opportunities to volunteer and vote for climate champions while also working with the campaign on behalf of EDF Action PAC to contact and turn out voters.
EDF Action also worked with other environmental groups — Clean Energy for America, the League of Conservation Voters, NRDC Action Fund, National Wildlife Federation Action Fund, the Sierra Club and the Wilderness Society Action Fund — to put together the largest-ever national member mobilization effort in a non-Presidential election cycle.
