OIA 2018 Election Candidate Endorsements
June 13, 2018 – Outdoor Industry Association Endorses Joe Neguse for Colorado’s Second Congressional District
Outdoor Industry Association (OIA) today announced its endorsement of candidate Joe Neguse in the Democratic primary election for Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District and looks forward to supporting his election to the U.S. House of Representatives on November 6.
“OIA’s headquarters and nearly five hundred outdoor businesses make their home in Colorado’s 2nd Congressional District,” said Alex Boian, OIA’s vice president of government affairs. “Joe impressed us with his ideas to protect and invest in our land and water and to combat the threats from climate change, as well as with his support for the 2nd Congressional District’s $2.5 billion outdoor recreation economy. OIA is proud to stand behind Joe and help get him elected to Congress this fall.”
Today’s endorsement of Joe Neguse is the first by OIA in the 2018 election. In the next several weeks, OIA will release additional endorsements for candidates who recognize and support the outdoor recreation economy.
