EDF Action Congratulates Representative Greg Stanton for Winning Reelection
Lowering Energy Costs and Creating Clean Energy Jobs Helped Push Representative Stanton to Victory
(Washington, D.C. – November 12, 2022) EDF Action congratulates U.S. Representative Greg Stanton (AZ-04) for winning reelection.
“Voters sent a strong message by reelecting Greg Stanton to Congress,” said EDF Action President David Kieve. “Stanton’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 Greg Stanton in his reelection bid and know he’ll continue to fight for Arizona families. We look forward to working with Representative Stanton to continue making climate progress over the next two years.”
EDF Action had two on-the-ground organizers in Arizona working to mobilize climate activists for Representative Stanton’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 Greg Stanton by deploying staff to Arizona. 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.
