Colorado | LCV Victory Fund


Michael Bennet

Senator Michael Bennet has witnessed firsthand the devastating impact that climate change is already having with communities across Colorado ravaged by deadly wildfires, historic droughts and other extreme weather events. That’s why Bennet helped lead the charge to pass critical legislation that will reduce harmful climate pollution while also creating new clean energy jobs, lowering household energy bills for Colorado families, and moving us away from our dangerous dependence on fossil fuels. Additionally, with outdoor recreation a key part of the state’s economy, Bennet has been a tireless advocate for protecting Colorado’s public lands, water and wildlife, which includes working to ensure that the Land and Water Conservation Fund is permanently fully funded. In the Senate, Bennet has earned an impressive lifetime score of 90% in LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard.


Joe O’Dea

Republican businessman Joe O’Dea has tried to brand himself as a moderate, but the truth is that he has demonstrated he is on the side of Big Oil and would not support pro-environment legislation. Despite Colorado already facing devastating climate impacts that are ruining lives and harming the economy, O’Dea is a climate denier who has said that the climate crisis doesn’t require “urgent” action. In fact, he has said he would default to the “oil and gas people” on environmental regulations. O’Dea has come out against the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Economy (CORE) Act, which would provide additional protection for tens of thousands of acres in federal land. And a pro-O’Dea super PAC, American Policy Fund, received $300,000  from Big Oil during the Republican primary.
