Assemblyman Roy Freiman (D-16) offered the following comment on his League support moments after his running mate struck out at the League:
“I am gratified that the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) has joined the Sierra Club and recognized me with their endorsement. My record has demonstrated that I prioritize the critical need to protect our environment. However, I am choosing to decline the LCV endorsement.
“By failing to endorse my running mate Andrew Zwicker, LCV acted in a vindictive manner when they were unable to persuade him to abandon his principles on Dark Money, even though he has an impeccable environmental record.
“I stand with my running mate. We are a team that is committed to ensuring that the generations after us will have clean water, clean air and live in a greener society. Should LCV see fit to endorse candidates based on their environmental record then I would be honored to accept their endorsement.”
