Republicans for Environmental Protection Endorses Raj

Republicans for Environmental Protection (REP) is pleased to endorse Raj Bhakta in his candidacy to represent Pennsylvania's 13th District in Congress.

The 10-year old Republican conservation organization, with a nationwide grassroots membership that also includes many elected Republican officeholders, said that Bhakta is a strong advocate for protecting our environment and supports policies that will responsibly address the serious environmental challenges facing America.

"Raj is a conservation-minded Republican in the great tradition of Theodore Roosevelt," said REP President Martha Marks. "He truly understands environmental issues and is committed to responsible policies that control sprawl, improve air and water quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, conserve our natural resources, and promote clean, renewable energy."

Marks added, "Our party as a whole is not where it should be when it comes to environmental protection. That is why we need to elect Republicans like Raj Bhakta to Congress. His enthusiasm, energy and strong stewardship ethic will be a positive force in Congress and help build the bipartisan support needed to solve our most pressing environmental challenges."

Republicans for Environmental Protection is dedicated to restoring the GOP's great conservation tradition, which began with the vision and leadership of President Theodore Roosevelt.

"Republicans were responsible for most of this nation's landmark environmental laws and for protecting many of America's national parks, forests, wildlife refuges and wilderness areas," Marks said. "We are fortunate to have candidates like Raj stepping forward to carry on that stewardship tradition."
