Defenders backs Michael Bennet in CO Senate race

Michael BennetThe Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund, the political arm of the non-profit organization, endorses political candidates in each election cycle based on their record as it relates to ecological and wildlife conservation issues. The action fund has weighed in on Colorado’s most visible nationally relevant race.


Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund has endorsed Michael Bennet because he is a true conservation champion. Michael Bennet has proven time and again that he can be counted on to cast his vote for you — and the wolves, polar bears and other wildlife you care about.

The integrity of the Endangered Species Act — the keystone for protecting our most vulnerable wildlife — has withstood attack after attack thanks to champions like Michael Bennet. In fact, Michael Bennet scored an impressive 100 percent on Defenders Action Fund’s 2010 Conservation Report Card.

And without the leadership of people like Michael Bennet, landmark legislation like the Clean Water Act and the Clean Air Act — legislation that continues to protect our health and quality of life – would not have been possible.

Now more than ever, we need people like Michael Bennet to protect our air, water, wildlife and wild places. Michael Bennet won’t buy into Big Oil and corporate polluters’ false choice between protecting the environment and growing our economy.

Michael Bennet knows that we can protect what we cherish and grow our economy at the same time. And he will help ensure we invest in the clean, renewable and wildlife-friendly energy programs that will create new jobs, grow our economy and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

In this year’s election, vote with your conservation values. Please help re-elect Michael Bennet on Tuesday, November 2nd – and support a conservation majority in Congress.
