Gore Group Targets Bayh, McCaskill, Lincoln To Build Support For Climate Legislation (VIDEO)


Repower America, a project of Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection is upping the pressure on swing-vote Democrats to support legislative action on climate change.

In a spot that’s set to run for at least three weeks on cable and local network affiliates in Indiana, “real Hoosiers” tell viewers to contact their senators…including Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN)–a long-time hold out on climate legislation.

ACP isn’t just going after Bayh. It’s also set to target a number of on-the-fence Democrats in a couple weeks when it unveils segments in Missouri and Arkansas–the home states of Sens. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), and Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) respectively.

Repower America is also running an ad in Maine, pressuring Sens. Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and Susan Collins (R-ME) to buck their party and support a climate bill. You can see that segment below.
