Trenton, NJ— Today the New Jersey League of Conservation Voters Political Action Committee (NJLCV PAC) released its first campaign mailers of the 2013 election supporting Republican State Senator “Kip Bateman.” 

Voters in LD 16 will be receiving unique campaign mailers later this week from NJLCV PAC supporting New Jersey’s Greenest State Senator, Republican “Kip” Bateman.  (1: “Get Along” and 2: “Shocker”)  These mail pieces are part of the five waves of mail the group is sending to 12,174 Democratic and Unaffiliated households endorsing Senator Bateman as a different kind of Republican, working across the aisle to protect our environment, preserve open space, safeguard our water, and clean our air.

“When elected officials, regardless of party stand up for clean air, open space and clean energy, we stand up for them,” said Ed Potosnak, Executive Director of NJLCV.  “We are proud to stand with Senator Kip Bateman, New Jersey’s Greenest State Senator, and are investing heavily to support his re-election.”

LD 16 is a newly competitive district with the addition of Princeton and South Brunswick—registered Democrats (36,580) outnumber Republicans (32,275) with 62,166 Independents.   NJLCV endorsed Republican Kip Bateman for Senate as well Democratic challenger Marie Cornfield for the Assembly in LD 16.

NJLCV is spending over $40,000 on 5 waves of mail over the first three weeks of October, praising Senator Bateman’s 91% environmental rating on NJLCV’s 2013 Scorecard.
