Northam for Governor To Air New Ad “Environment”
Ed Gillespie Has A Troubling Disregard For Science
Richmond, Va. — Today, the Northam for Governor campaign announced it will begin airing a new ad entitled “Environment.”
Every Virginian wants clean air and water in our commonwealth. Now more than ever, we need a Governor who will protect our environment and who will trust science over powerful special interests. Ed Gillespie will be a rubber stamp for Trump’s devastating environmental rollbacks, and has shown a troubling disregard for science.
“Ed Gillespie has put corporate, polluter interests above Virginians’ for years. In fact, he’s made a career of it,” said Michael Town, Executive Director of the Virginia League of Conservation Voters Political Action Committee. “Ralph Northam is the only candidate in this race we can trust to act on climate change and continue to grow Virginia’s clean energy economy.”
As a doctor and someone who grew up on the Eastern Shore, Ralph knows what the environment means to so many Virginians, which is why he firmly believes in addressing climate change and protecting our environment for ourselves and our children. The choice in this election could not be more clear — Virginia needs a governor who will prioritize our children’s future and listen to the science community, not a man who will join Donald Trump in rolling back our clean air and water protections.
RALPH NORTHAM: Protecting our environment is one of the most important things we can do for our kids. And as a doctor, I trust the science on climate change.
But Ed Gillespie worked for a think tank that rejects climate science and fought to pull out of the global climate agreement.
Now Ed’s going right along with Donald Trump as he tries to roll back our clean air and water protections.
I’m Ralph Northam, candidate for Governor, and I sponsored this ad because this belongs to all of us.
