ALLEN v. KAINE BATTLE IN NOVEMBER IS KEY PUBLIC LAND ACCESS FIGHT
WASHINGTON D.C. – Outdoor recreation access interests are watching to see if George Allen wins the primary to face Tim Kaine in the November general election.
When Senator George Allen was in prior office (109th Congress), he was listed as a “Champion of Private Property Rights” by the League of Private Property Voters.
During that same time-period, then Governor Tim Kaine filed a petition with the federal government for them to set aside almost 25% of scarce multiple-use Forest Service lands as “Clinton-era Roadless Areas” on 400,000 acres in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests.
Don Amador, Founder of The Trail PAC, states, “Off-roaders will continue to support the George Allen for Senate campaign in this election as one of our key targeted senate races. Allen will need our support because the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) has targeted him for defeat. As you know, LCV has a voting review committee comprised of hard-core anti-OHV groups including the Earthjustice Legal Defense Fund and The Wilderness Society.”
“TPAC believes this election is critical for trail voters and is committed to helping ensure the trail community is effectively engaged and represented in the election process,” Amador concludes.
