Ami Bera

The right targets

Ami Bera in a key congressional race in our chapter

Karl Rove’s independent expenditure campaign spent almost one million dollars in TV ads before Labor Day to jump-start Doug Ose’s campaign to unseat Ami Bera, one of the strongest friends of the environment in Congress.

Former Congressman Doug Ose, Bera's opponent in the Cong. Dist. 7 race, has said government should take no action to combat climate change, while Rep. Ami Bera M.D. (D-Elk Grove) voted against the Keystone XL Pipeline. In his position on the Science, Space, and Technology Committee, Bera regularly stands up to those who deny climate change.

Elected to Congress in 2012, Rep. Bera's record has earned an "A" rating from the League of Conservation Voters and a Sierra Club endorsement, but he is one of the most vulnerable Democrats in Congress, with the race rated a “tossup.”

The campaign welcomes volunteers and donations. Visit: http://www.beraforcongress.com

Global population

in the news

 

In recognizing World Population Day, July 11, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune  noted, “The problem is not simply what we are doing (climate disruption); it's also how many of us are doing it. Population growth has...a big effect on our climate.“  Read more >>>
