Richard Burr is slick with oil contributions
A coalition including the League of Conservation Voters, the Sierra Club, SEIU, and veterans group VoteVets.org has launched a new ad slamming Republican Senator Richard Burr for siding with Big Oil companies and against the American people. Senator Burr has taken over $426 thousand from Big Oil and Gas to fuel his campaign for reelection so he can spend six more years in Washington, DC, protecting corporate interests:
Instead of doing the bidding of oil companies and voting to exempt them from their responsibility under the law to clean up the way they do business, our senator should side with the people of North Carolina and support legislation to end our country’s addiction to foreign oil and create the clean energy jobs of the future.
