NWF Action Fund Endorses Sen. Susan Collins for Re-Election

"Senator Collins isn't afraid to cross party lines to take a stand for hunters and anglers, fighting to protect Maine's air and water from industrial mercury pollution," said Curtis Fisher, senior adviser to the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund.

The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund has endorsed the re-election of U.S. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine. A member of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus, Sen. Collins has served as a leading voice for bipartisan conservation solutions.

“Senator Collins isn’t afraid to cross party lines to take a stand for hunters and anglers, fighting to protect Maine’s air and water from industrial mercury pollution,” said Curtis Fisher, senior adviser to the National Wildlife Federation Action Fund. “She’s also been a bipartisan leader in supporting on-the-ground conservation progress, including investments in key fish and wildlife programs such as the Land and Water Conservation Fund.”

Sen. Collins has opposed oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, a vital wildlife habitat that supports key species from migratory waterfowl to caribou. She’s also a cosponsor of the bipartisan Incentivizing Offshore Wind Power Act.

“Susan Collins is a champion for America’s emerging offshore wind energy industry that can create thousands of jobs, power millions of homes and businesses, and protect our communities and wildlife by cutting the industrial carbon pollution that’s fueling climate change,” said Bill Houston, a Maine guide and a leading conservationist. “Maine’s hunters and anglers need a strong voice for moderate conservation values representing us in Washington now more than ever.”

The National Wildlife Federation Action Fund has invested over $2 million to help conservation candidates win in each of the last two Congressional campaign cycles. All 18 candidates endorsed by the NWF Action Fund won their races in the 2012 Congressional elections. Learn more at NWFActionFund.org.
