The Democratic primary run off in Mississippi is on Tuesday.

The Sierra Club’s National Political Team and the Mississippi Chapter endorsed David Baria for US Senate (from Mississippi) “in appreciation of” his “demonstrated commitment to protecting America’s environment.”
They further explain that:
“The Sierra Club is committed to promoting clean energy solutions to move the national beyond dirty fossil fuels like coal, oil and dangerous nuclear power, and toward a safe, clean energy future built on energy efficiency, clean energy, and American innovation. Since our founding in 1892, the Sierra Club has protected America’s wild places and wildlife. In addition, the Club works to protect public health and ensure safe and healthy communities that are free of toxic air and water pollution. The Sierra Club and its over 3 million members and supporters work to support candidates who share these values…” Emphasis our own.

“David Baria for Mississippi June 8 at 10:30 AM ·
I am honored by the endorsement of the Sierra Club. In the legislature I fought to hold corporate polluters accountable and I will continue to fight for clean air and clean water from the US Senate.”
