Priorities USA Action, LCV Victory Fund Partner on GOTV in Four House Districts

October 19, 2018

Digital ads will boost turnout in TX-32, IL-14, CA-10 & TX-23

WASHINGTON, DC – Priorities USA Action announced a partnership today with LCV Victory Fund to launch a $300,000 get-out-the-vote digital ad campaign to reach young people and people of color in four U.S. House districts. The ads, intended to increase voter turnout, will run in CA-10, IL-14, TX-23 and TX-32.

The ads will run across digital and social media platforms through Election Day.

“We’re doing a lot to inform voters about the environmental issues at stake this year, but we also are thrilled to be working with Priorities USA to make sure people vote and let their voices be heard. People of color and young people have the power to transform this year’s elections across the country,” said Pete Maysmith, LCV Victory Fund Senior Vice President for Campaigns. “The common thread through these four districts is that each of them pits an anti-environmental incumbent with an abysmal LCV score against a new, pro-environmental champion who is eager to build the clean energy future that will work for everyone.”

“We’re proud to partner with LCV Victory Fund to help motivate and mobilize voters in these key House districts,” said Patrick McHugh, Priorities USA Action Executive Director. “Younger, diverse voters are more likely to get their news online, making a digital campaign critical to reaching these voters and getting them out to vote on Election Day.”

In CA-10, LCV Victory Fund is working to support Josh Harder and defeat Jeff Denham, who has earned an embarrassing 6 percent lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.
In IL-14, LCV Victory Fund is working to elect Lauren Underwood and defeat Randy Hultgren with his lifetime LCV score of 5 percent.
In TX-23, LCV Victory Fund is turning out voters in support of Gina Ortiz-Jones and in opposition to Rep. Will Hurd, who ties for lowest score of this group, with a lifetime LCV score of 2 percent.
In TX-32, LCV Victory Fund is seeking to elect Colin Allred in place of Rep. Pete Sessions, the other 2-percenter in this effort.
