CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Conservative philanthropist Jay Faison today announced the formation of ClearPath Action, a new independent expenditure-only political action committee being established to help elect Republicans to public office and advance a conservative clean energy policy agenda for GOP lawmakers. Faison is also the CEO and founder of ClearPath, a private non-profit foundation dedicated to accelerating conservative clean energy policy solutions.
"No one is currently providing enough support to candidates who embrace conservative clean energy principles and feel compelled to talk about clean energy as part of their campaign," said Faison in announcing the effort. "We're forming this committee to make an impact, provide support, and help Republicans this election cycle and in future election cycles."
"We know that Democrats are using clean energy as a wedge issue and we're committed to fighting back and going on offense for the GOP," added Faison. "We don't have to agree on climate change to agree that Republicans can support a conservative clean energy platform that provides energy security, creates jobs and boosts our economy, and reduces pollution."
ClearPath Action is building a sophisticated campaign infrastructure with plans to help support multiple Republican candidates throughout the country in 2016. For more information on ClearPath Action, visit www.ClearPathAction.org.
