Conservation Wins with Western Voters
Throughout the West, land conservation is a winning campaign issue.
Western voters identify with the region’s outdoor spaces and deeply value access for hiking, hunting, fishing, and camping. Whether a candidate is running for president, governor, senator, or representative, those who show support for the West’s outdoors, parks, and public lands have a leg up in connecting with voters.
This year, the road to the White House runs through the Rocky Mountain West with Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, and Montana looming as key showdowns. The region will also host important races for governor, for the U.S. Senate, and for the U.S. House of Representatives.
The Winning the West Campaign provides information and data to help candidates connect with Westerners in a way that strikes the right balance on public lands, energy, and recreation issues.
