(Washington, D.C. – November 12, 2022) EDF Action congratulates U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (NV) for winning reelection.  

“Voters sent a strong message by reelecting Catherine Cortez Masto to a second term in the U.S. Senate,” said EDF Action President David Kieve. “Cortez Masto’s record these past six years 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 Catherine Cortez Masto in her reelection bid and know she’ll continue to fight for Nevada families. We look forward to working with Senator Cortez Masto to continue making climate progress over the next six years.” 

EDF Action Votes invested $500,000 on a Spanish language radio and mail campaign to help reelect Senator Cortez Masto. 

EDF Action had four on-the-ground organizers in Nevada working to mobilize climate activists for Senator Cortez Masto’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 Catherine Cortez Masto 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.
