After typically railing against our politicians in Washington, happy today to celebrate a handful.
There are some who are true ocean champions and they deserve to be acknowledged and celebrated.
Thanks to the OceanChampions.org who have worked tirelessly to put this together. From them comes hope.
So celebrate these ocean champions:
Senators Mark Begich (AK), Ben Cardin (MD), Bill Nelson (FL), Olympia Snowe (ME), Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), and Representatives Shelley Berkley (NV), Lois Capps (CA-23), Kathy Castor (FL-11), Sam Farr (CA-17), John Garamendi (CA-10), Martin Heinrich (NM-1), Rush Holt (NJ-12), Ed Markey (MA-7), Nick J.Rahall, II (WV-3), and candidates Val Demings (FL-8) and Jared Huffman (CA-2).
