League of Conservation Voters Action Fund Endorses John Foust for Congress


Good news for John Foust, although not surprising given Barbara Comstock’s pathetic record on the environment (e.g., does she even “believe” in climate science?).

WASHINGTON, DC-The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) Action Fund, which works to elect candidates who will implement sound environmental policies, announced today its endorsement of John Foust for Congress (VA-10). If elected to Congress, Foust will work to protect our air, water and tackle climate change.

“John Foust will be an environmental ally in Congress as he works to tackle dangerous climate disruption and preserve our public lands for future generations to enjoy,” said LCV Action Fund President Gene Karpinski. “He will protect public health by supporting commonsense solutions that ensure our air and water are clean.”

“John Foust has been a strong advocate for Virginia as he has worked to protect our environment, and will continue this leadership in Congress,” said Michael Town, Executive Director of the Virginia League of Conservation Voters. “He will support bipartisan policies that conserve our precious lands and natural resources.”

“I am honored to receive the support of the League of Conservation Voters Action Fund,” said Foust. “I will work hard to address the environmental issues of our day. In the past, we have been able to work together in Congress to help solve environmental problems, and I am optimistic that we will be able to work together in a commonsense, bipartisan way again if we start electing representatives who will bring that approach to Washington. The challenges we face are ones we can fix, and I intend to work hard across the aisle to address these problems in Congress.”

A resident of McLean, John Foust served on the Fairfax Board of Supervisors since 2007 and has also served on the citizen council that advised the Fairfax County government on local environmental matters. If elected, he will continue to fight for northern Virginians and to protect our planet for future generations by working to combat climate change. He is committed to safeguarding the air we breathe and the water we drink, and will advocate for the conservation of Virginia and the nation’s iconic landscapes.

John Foust is featured on LCV Action Fund’s GiveGreen website, the only bundling website devoted exclusively to raising money for environmental champions and candidates.

    Foust’s thoughtful in researching KXL as well, but I want to bend his ear on that one.  Indian tribes fear broken sacred trust.  Too many harmful chemicals polluting aquifers and no oil products to stay in US. So much data against, so few jobs.

    loudountimes reports that $1 mill going to Comstock from Boehner’s pac. Ugh

  • my question today is whether she agrees with the discussion on her endorser Sean Hannity’s show about how it’s actually Ray Rice who was the victim of domestic abuse. Note that Hannity doesn’t disagree with his guest. Also note that he then starts questioning the statistic presented by another guest about how one in four women have been victims of domestic violence, claiming he’d never heard that one. I mean, it took me all of about 2 seconds using that new-fangled thang called “Google” to find this. Anyway, Barbara Comstock, are you EVER going to condemn ANY of the insane, extremist, bigoted, whatever s*** that your endorsers – Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, etc. – keep saying? Or by your silence, should we assume that you tacitly agree with them and/or approve of the crazy/extremist crap they spew?
