Abstract: Taking into consideration the recent declarations of "The Death of Environmentalism," I examine the most effective methods for political candidates to advocate environmental issues during electoral campaigns. I explore how the thin but broad public support for environmental issues can be utilized, and overcome, in electing green candidates. I compare Chris Gregoire's gubernatorial campaign in 2004 with Maria Cantwell's 2006 senatorial campaign as a means of elucidating these tactical distinctions.
