VIRGINIA BEACH – Today, Elaine Luria’s campaign for Congress announced the endorsement of 314 Action, the leading pro-science advocacy group working to elect more STEM candidates to office. As a former nuclear engineer in the Navy, Elaine’s campaign in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District has prioritized evidence-based policy solutions, opposition to off shore drilling, and tackling climate change.
“As a U.S. Navy veteran, a nuclear engineer, and a small business owner, Elaine is a proven leader with a track record of success.” said Shaughnessy Naughton, President of 314 Action, “She has exactly the kind of real-world experience we look for in candidates and that is desperately needed in Congress, and we are proud to stand with her.”
“Protecting the environment for future generations is critical to the residents of Coastal Virginia,” said Elaine Luria. “From the Eastern Shore to Virginia Beach—our health, our livelihood, and our military readiness depend on evidence-based solutions to rising sea levels, recurrent flooding, and keeping pollution out of our waters. I’m proud to have the pro-science leaders of 314 Action on my team in this endeavor.”
