2022 - Electoral Victory
Over 70 candidates edorsed by Wisconsin Conservation Voters win their race in the 2022 spring election.
Conservation voters turned out in communities across Wisconsin in an election marked by record outside spending and involvement in local races. Over 70 candidates edorsed by Wisconsin Conservation Voters won their elections – a record for us in local races. Despite record out-of-state spending and unprecedented attack ads, our endorsed candidates fought positive, issue-based campaigns. Even in the biggest races with the most money, we were able to fight, shift the narrative, and win.
In Eau Claire, a majority of our endorsed candidates won and will continue to grow the city as a leader in climate action. All of our Appleton endorsed candidates won their races and will partner with our campaign to transition the city to 100 percent clean energy. In La Crosse County, we defended a pro-conservation majority against heavy opposition spending. Our success in Portage County will elevate and address clean water issues. Our work also helped defeat the fake Trump elector on the De Pere City Council.
