Washington, D.C. — In response to the vice presidential debate tonight, LCV Victory Fund issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Campaigns Pete Maysmith:
“This was a historic night for equity and climate justice. Kamala Harris, the first ever woman of color on a major party ticket, showed us what it will be like to have compassionate, just, pro-science, pro-environment leadership in the White House. The start of the Biden-Harris administration could not come soon enough.
“Biden and Harris have a plan to make the largest-ever investment to combat climate change, address environmental injustice, and create 10 million good-paying jobs. Trump and Pence deny climate change — despite the consensus of 97 percent of scientific experts that human-caused climate change is real. And Pence said systemic racism does not exist. We need to confront systemic racism head on. We choose science over fiction. We choose Biden-Harris over Trump-Pence.”
