No surprise: Sierra Club backs Larson

No surprise in this announcement:

The Sierra Club announced the endorsement of Chris Larson for election to Senate District 7. Larson has earned the Sierra Club’s endorsement by virtue of his responses to a candidate questionnaire, his environmental platforms, public service, and public statements. Sierra Club-endorsed candidates are those judged to be the best advocates for Wisconsin’s clean air, clean water, and special places.

“Chris Larson’s commitments to fight climate change, enact real renewable energy policies and standards and his support for intercity high speed rail and Regional Transit Authorities make him the Sierra Club’s choice,” said Dave Blouin, Political Committee Chair. “Voters in District 7 can count on Chris Larson’s commitment to protect Wisconsin’s environment.

Larson is challenging incumbent State Sen. Jeff Plale in the Democratic primary.  Plale almost single-handedly killed the Clean Energy Jobs Act, a top priority for environmental groups,  last session.  Now he may finally have to pay the piper for his years of working on behalf of the special interests instead of his constituents.
