OFF-ROADERS NAME RICK BERG FOR SENATE AS A TARGETED KEY RACE
North Bethesda, MD – Today, the Trail PAC is proud to name, Rick Berg for Senate, as its 6th targeted key Senate race in the 2012 election. TPAC was founded as the first national non-partisan political action committee dedicated solely to championing responsible off-highway vehicle recreation on designated roads, trails, and areas on public lands through the electoral process.
The race in North Dakota has tightened recently between Rick Berg and his opponent, Heidi Heitkamp. Rick has a record of fighting against over-regulation by the EPA. Those regulations often impact trail use on public lands. Heidi is a former EPA attorney and one of her first acts in office would be to re-elect Harry Reid as Senate Majority Leader. Trail voters don’t want Harry back in a leadership role where he has continually blocked House bills that address Forest Service travel management-related closures and regulatory reforms at the EPA.
Don Amador, Founder of TPAC, states, “Tens of thousands of miles of historic trails and roads on public lands have been closed over the last 4 years to OHV users. Trail enthusiasts need Rick in the Senate to represent and support responsible access to public lands. ”
“Trail users and other public land access groups deserve better than the status quo in the U.S. Senate,” Amador concludes.
