The conservation performance of the House of Representatives going into Election Night.

CVNM's electoral work in House races is laser-focused on a specific goal: to secure a pro-conservation majority. In order to achieve this goal, we worked to protect our current conservation champions (dark green on the spectrum) and secure four more pro-conservation seats. CVNM strategically focused on 26 House races in which we are either working to protect a proven Conservation Champion or where our assessment determined that a viable candidate could improve the conservation performance of the seat. We’ll be updating this spectrum throughout the night.
