Congressman Walden is a national leader who understands that advancing clean energy solutions to further stimulate innovation and our economy is best served through Republican leadership. His commonsense-driven approach to finding legislative solutions to private sector challenges demonstrates we can promote investments in renewable sources of energy that spur domestic manufacturing, strengthen our national security, and maximize the potential economic opportunity we have here in the US.
