WASHINGTON, DC - League of Conservation Voters (LCV) President Gene Karpinski issued the following statement regarding Senator Chris Dodd's new global warming television ad:
"The League of Conservation Voters applauds Senator Chris Dodd for making global warming a focal point of his campaign. Not only has Senator Dodd outlined an ambitious plan to curb global warming - he is also the first presidential candidate ever to release an ad focusing solely on this key issue.
More and more Americans want our next President to address global warming and propose bold solutions to this challenge.
Senator Dodd is helping to remind America that our president has the power to stop global warming - it's in their hands.
We look forward to seeing the debate on this issue continue to advance in the coming months."
