NWF Action Fund Endorses Rep. Frank LoBiondo for Re-Election

The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund has endorsed Rep. Frank LoBiondo for re-election in New Jersey's 2nd Congressional district.

The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund has endorsed Rep. Frank LoBiondo for re-election in New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional district. LoBiondo is a longtime champion for the natural resources of New Jersey and beyond, willing to forge bipartisan agreements and break ranks with party leadership to stand up for conservation values. LoBiondo recently signed the National Wildlife Federation’s pledge to support keeping public lands in public hands.

“Throughout his time in Congress, Frank LoBiondo has been an independent voice for conservation and wildlife protection. He’s a leader in efforts to protect the Delaware River Basin, maintain clean water safeguards, and cut industrial carbon pollution by investing in clean energy like offshore wind,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund. “Rep. LoBiondo knows that protecting America’s wildlife and outdoor heritage isn’t a partisan issue. It’s a deeply held mainstream value for which there need to be pro-conservation voices in both parties.”

A lifelong outdoor enthusiast, Rep. LoBiondo has been willing to break ranks at times with his own party’s leadership to stand up for conservation values. He’s stood up to defend our National Parks and Wildlife Refuges and to help recover our most at-risk wildlife. Rep. LoBiondo also voted to protect the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge from destructive oil drilling and to preserve the Environmental Protection Agency’s ability to cut industrial carbon pollution.  

As a member of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, Rep. LoBiondo has a long record of advocating for the protection and restoration of America’s Great Waters, mass transit, recreation trails and open space. He’s also worked to secure federal support for restoring and strengthening New Jersey’s wetlands and marshes in the wake of superstorm Sandy to protect communities and wildlife habitat from future storms while promoting fishing and other natural resource-dependent businesses.

An estimated 2.4 million people took part in fishing, hunting and other wildlife-related recreation in New Jersey generating $2.3 billion in economic activity in 2011, according to the most recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service survey.
