Polis Gets a Proverbial Pat on the Back From Tom Steyer

An energy group founded by Tom Steyer is giving Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), the Democratic nominee for governor of Colorado, high marks for his commitments to their priorities on energy and the environment.

Colorado Politics reported on Tuesday:

Advanced Energy Economy, a group founded by liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, is giving high marks to Democrat Jared Polis’ ideas for Colorado’s future green power sources.

…The left-leaning group said it would follow the report card with digital ads.

The report card in question gives Polis checkmarks on five priority items for Steyer’s group and gives Republican nominee Walker Stapleton five question marks.

It’s not Steyer’s first indirect intervention into the Colorado gubernatorial race. A mysterious group called Good Jobs Colorado, funded in large part by an organization funded by Steyer and fellow liberal billionaire George Soros, ran a factually-inaccurate ad attacking Stapleton in September.

And it’s not an environmental group’s first intervention in the race, either. The League of Conservation Voters (LCV) has praised Polis’s commitment to forcing Colorado to be “100 percent clean energy reliant by 2050.” The Sierra Club has committed $600,000 to get Polis elected this November.

Steyer got his start in politics as an environmental activist, but has since moved on to an eight-figure campaign to impeach President Trump and a potential presidential run in 2020.
