WASHINGTON – LCV Senior Vice President of Campaigns Navin Nayak released the following statement in response to tonight’s NBC News/POLITICO presidential debate:

“Frontrunner Rick Perry’s worst moment of tonight’s debate was clearly his attempt to deny settled climate science. Perry demonstrated the breadth of his ignorance when pushed to name one scientist he agrees with and had the most difficulty of any candidate in the debate trying to defend his anti-science beliefs.  Rick Perry decided to take on 97% of scientists, two-thirds of Americans and the Pentagon over whether climate change is real, serious and requires a solution.”
