The Sierra Club is running an $8 million campaign to promote candidates it likes (mostly Democrats with a few Republicans thrown in) and attack candidates it does not. The group’s good guys include Reps. Brian Baird (D-Wash.), Lane Evans (D-Ill.), Joseph Hoeffel (D-Pa.), Rush Holt (D-N.J.), Jay Inslee (D-Wash), Jim Leach (R-Iowa), Adam Smith (D-Wash.), and Mark Udall (D-Colo.), and Sens. Jim Jeffords (R-Vt.) and William Roth (R-Del.). Bad guys include Sen. Slade Gorton (R-Wash.) and Senate hopeful George Allen (R-Va.), the state’s former governor.
