Six GOP House members are in the cross-hairs of a new advertising barrage that seeks to portray them as lenient toward fossil fuel industries.
The Sierra Club will start its mail and TV campaign Wednesday by hitting Rep. Dan Lungren (R-Calif.) with a TV advertisement that will air in his district for the next 10 days. The spot says the incumbent’s voting record and $455,000 in campaign contributions show he is too friendly with the oil-and-gas industry.
Trey Pollard, a spokesman with the Sierra Club, said the campaign would run through the Nov. 6 election. He said the endeavor is the beginning of a broader organization mission.
