WFXR — Clean Virginia says it plans to invest $1 million in the 2019 state legislative election.
Clean Virginia is a non-profit organization that promotes clean energy and a healthy economy and community.
The investment is in support of candidates that do not accept campaign contributions from regulated utility monopolies.
Clean Virginia’s first round of general election endorsements also support clean government and energy.
For a candidate to qualify, their public statements, 2019 Candidate Questionnaire, legislative record, and stance on accepting contributions from companies such as Dominion Energy and Appalachian Power are all reviewed by Clean Virginia.
Clean Virginia’s support is not party-specific. Candidates and incumbents alike are eligible for the endorsement.
