NWF Action Fund Endorses Lujan Grisham for Congress

Angler Can Be Counted On To Stand Up For Conservation Concerns

The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund has endorsed Michelle Lujan Grisham for Congress in New Mexico's 1st Congressional district.

"As a fly fisher herself, Michelle Lujan Grisham knows that conservation is a top priority for New Mexico hunters and anglers. From protecting fish and wildlife to ensuring access to public lands, these are kitchen table issues for sportsmen," said Sue Brown, executive director of the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund. "Her background in public health also gives Lujan Grisham a strong understanding of the connection between clean air and water and healthy families."

Lujan Grisham is running for the seat being vacated by Rep. Martin Heinrich, whose campaign for U.S. Senate has also been endorsed by the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund.

"Protection of America's outdoor heritage and the effort to ensure a safer and cleaner environment for this and future generations should not be partisan issues," said Brown. "In fact, they're deeply held values shared by Americans from all walks of life and political stripes."

A new poll of sportsmen shows threats to America's conservation heritage are priority issues for sportsmen, on par with gun rights. Conducted by Chesapeake Beach Consulting for the National Wildlife Federation, NWF Action Fund's 501(c)3 sister organization, the poll illustrates hunters and anglers express support and concern about a number of conservation issues including Gulf clean-up, clean water protections, access to public lands, global warming solutions, and protecting America's outdoor heritage for our children's future.
