In Oregon’s 4th congressional district, LCV Action Fund-endorsed Val Hoyle is running for an open seat against Republican and conservative media star Alek Skarlatos. As Oregon Labor Commissioner, Hoyle was a champion for workers – going to bat for middle class families. In Congress, she’ll work to tackle inflation head on, fight for good-paying clean energy jobs, and work to move us away from dirty fossil fuels. Skarlatos is a misogynistic MAGA extremist who joked about choking women during an appearance on a podcast in 2018. In addition to his despicable actions, Skarlatos has also denied human-caused climate change, refused to accept the results of the 2020 election, and repeatedly downplayed the January 6th insurrection.
