Independence, MO – The League of Conservation Voters Action Fund has endorsed Lucas Kunce for U.S. Senate. A major national group, LCV Action Fund is focused on electing candidates who are committed to protecting their state’s resources and building out the next generation of energy here in America.
“Lucas Kunce has been a champion for protecting Missouri farmland, creating next-generation energy jobs, and conserving the state’s natural resources, and will continue to do so for communities across Missouri and the country,” said LCV Action Fund Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld. “As a national security leader, Kunce understands the threats of the climate crisis and the need for clean energy independence. We’re proud to endorse Lucas Kunce’s campaign because he will work to put people over polluters and fight for a more just and equitable democracy for all.”
The endorsement comes on the heels of polling demonstrating a competitive race between Lucas Kunce and Josh Hawley.
“Politicians in Washington have let Big Oil and Big Ag strip our communities for parts, ship our jobs overseas, send us to forever wars, and obliterate the middle class,” said Kunce. “I saw it as a Marine in Iraq and Afghanistan, and I see it as a Missourian. I’m proud to be supported by an organization that is committed to fighting back.”
