In an email sent out by Braley’s campaign on Monday, the actor, director and environmental activist writes, “Americans deserve a senator who understands the growing importance of climate change on our communities and our economy.”
 
Redford says that Braley’s Republican opponent, Joni Ernst, “opposes the Renewable Fuel Standard and said over and over again that if she were senator, she’d eliminate the [Environmental Protection Agency]."
 
“I don’t call that leadership,” the 77-year-old Academy Award winner says, “I call that passing the buck.”
 
A Quinnipiac University poll released last week found that Ernst, a state senator, holds a 2-point lead over Braley.
 
Redford asks that supporters donate $5 or more to Braley’s Senate campaign.

“There are only 8 more days left until Election Day. Help me get Bruce the support he needs to win.”
