Environment America endorses election of Utah’s Evan McMullin for US Senate
DENVER – Environment America announced Thursday it is endorsing Independent candidate Evan McMullin in Utah’s U.S. Senate race.
McMullin has said that, if elected, protecting Utah’s air and water will be one of his five priorities. In addition, he has supported improving water conservation practices — crucial in a state with wide open spaces, mountains and deserts.
“Utah is home to some of the greatest natural wonders of the world — from Arches, Canyonlands and other national parks to the snow sports meccas surrounding Salt Lake City,” said Lisa Frank, the executive director of Environment America’s Washington Legislative Office. “As we watch the climate crisis worsen, and states such as Utah endure record heat, extended droughts, dwindling snowpack and barren waterways, it’s crucial to elect leaders such as Evan McMullin who are willing to face these challenges head-on.“
