WASHINGTON – Today, Citizens for Responsible Energy Solutions (CRES) endorsed Utah’s 3rd Congressional District Representative and Conservative Climate Caucus Chairman John Curtis to serve in the U.S. Senate. CRES President Heather Reams released the following statement in response to Congressman Curtis’ announcement of his candidacy for Utah’s open U.S. Senate seat:
“Rep. John Curtis has proven himself a groundbreaking leader in the House of Representatives spearheading the Conservative Climate Caucus, which has already made huge advancements in public awareness of conservative engagement on energy issues and promoting Republican principles to improve the climate,” said CRES President Heather Reams. “CRES thanks Rep. Curtis for his leadership and proudly endorses him for the United States Senate, where he will undoubtedly continue his work leading Republicans to engage and support commonsense policies to produce more affordable, reliable, and clean American-made energy.”
During Chairman Curtis’ tenure, the Conservative Climate Caucus has grown to 85 Republican Members of Congress and has made significant progress in conservative engagement on climate issues. Just last month, Curtis attended the United Nations climate conference (COP28) in Dubai, UAE, and led conversations highlighting conservative solutions to the world’s most pressing energy and climate questions. In addition to founding the Caucus, Chairman Curtis has also led legislation to support advanced nuclear technologies, methane emissions reductions, and continued investments in U.S. clean energy innovation, development, and deployment.
In 2021, CRES honored Rep. Curtis as a Clean Energy Champion – an annual award to recognize Republican leaders in government who have gone above and beyond to support and advance clean energy legislation.
Chairman Curtis is seeking to fill the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah).
