(WASHINGTON, D.C- November 12, 2019) Today, EDF Action launched a mail and digital advertising campaign thanking Congressman Joe Cunningham (SC-01) for his leadership banning offshore drilling. This campaign includes targeted digital buys and mail for South Carolina’s 1st Congressional district highlighting his record working across the aisle to ban offshore drilling.
“EDF Action is excited to see Congressman Joe Cunningham leading by example – doing what’s right for his South Carolina district – creating jobs, growing the economy and protecting our coastline,” said EDF Action President Joe Bonfiglio. “Congressman Joe Cunningham is working across the aisle to fight for South Carolina families and showing true leadership on environmental issues, including banning offshore drilling.”
Congressman Joe Cunningham’s record speaks for itself. He introduced bipartisan legislation to permanently ban drilling off the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, which passed in the House of Representatives. He also offered an amendment to ban offshore drilling, using every tool available to make sure it becomes law.
This is part of a larger bipartisan advertising campaign thanking Reps. Harley Rouda, Cindy Axne, Sean Casten, Francis Rooney, Brian Fitzpatrick, Joe Cunningham and A. Donald McEachin for their environmental leadership. The total campaign spend across all seven districts is $600,000.
