Washington, D.C. — In response to the seventh Democratic primary debate, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Government Affairs Tiernan Sittenfeld:

“The people of Iowa spoke, and the candidates and moderators listened. Kudos to CNN, the Des Moines Register and every single presidential candidate on stage tonight for responding to Iowa caucus-goers’ demands for a substantive exchange about the ambitious solutions necessary to combat the climate crisis. Iowa voters are climate voters, and in the final weeks before the caucuses we look forward to hearing even more from candidates about how they will prioritize immediate action on climate that builds a more just and sustainable society.”
