In Colorado’s 8th congressional district, LCV Action Fund-endorsed Dr. Yadira Caraveo is running against Republican Barbara Kirkmeyer. As a pediatrician, Caraveo understands the need to protect the health and safety of Colorado families, which is why she’s committed to fighting for clean air and water and environmental justice. In Congress, she’ll be a strong advocate for bringing clean energy jobs to Colorado, confronting the climate crisis, and holding polluters accountable. As a county commissioner, Kirkmeyer voted to make it easier for oil companies to drill in residential areas – even voting to approve a massive oil and gas drilling operation near a middle school. Kirkmeyer is also a climate change denier who has opposed plans that would create clean energy jobs and lower energy bills.
