An environmental group has started running radio ads in Milwaukee pressuring U.S. Sens. Russ Feingold and Herb Kohl to support a clean energy bill.
The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) crafted two versions of the two spots, one for each lawmaker. Each quotes the senators talking about clean energy and then says they now have “the chance to do something” about it.
“We face a moment of decision, a moment to put words into action,” the narrator says before touting the "American Power Act” as a way to cut the country’s addiction to foreign oil, reduce pollution and “finally put America back in control” of its energy future.
“Senator Feingold, continue to lead,” the spot tailored to target Feingold closes. “Let’s focus on passing comprehensive climate and clean energy legislation.”
The EDF has also sent out mailers targeting the lawmakers.
