“David Holden embodies all of the qualities we look for in a candidate. As a congressman, he will address global climate change head-on and restore accountability to Washington. David recognizes that climate change is a chief cause of the toxic algae blooms in Southwest Florida’s waterways and will work to restore Lake Okeechobee’s southward flow. He will be a champion for clean water and environmental protections in Congress, and we are proud to endorse him.”
