Sierra Club: Secretary Hillary Clinton Announces Senator Tim Kaine as Her Running Mate

Democratic Candidates Makeup the Strongest Environmental Ticket in History

Washington, DC –(ENEWSPF)–July 25, 2016.   On Friday, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Secretary Hillary Clinton announced Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate.

In response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune released the following statement:

“Secretary Clinton’s selection of Senator Tim Kaine as her running mate completes the strongest environmental ticket we’ve ever seen. Together, Clinton and Kaine will build on President Obama’s legacy to safeguard our climate, air, water, and public lands, protect the most vulnerable from environmental injustice, and continue the rapid expansion of our clean energy economy.

“The Democratic ticket is in sharp contrast to the Republican’s, which features not one but two climate deniers, a first in American history. The Trump-Pence regime would be the only world leaders to hold that position. Simply put, a Trump-Pence Presidency wouldn’t be the only “TPP” that would destroy our climate.

“A leader on climate and our environment, Senator Kaine fought against the now rejected Keystone XL pipeline and continues to work to expand America’s clean energy.

“The Sierra Club applauds Secretary Clinton’s selection of Senator Kaine as her running mate, and we will work tirelessly to elect them.”
