LCV Victory Fund Statement on Philly Trump/McCormick Rally During Extreme Heatwave

June 21, 2024

Washington, D.C.: Ahead of Donald Trump’s rally with GOP Senate hopeful Dave McCormick tomorrow during the unusually early and record-breaking heatwave that is surging across Philadelphia and the Northeast, LCV Victory Fund released the following statement from Senior Vice President of Campaigns, Pete Maysmith:

“McCormick’s decision to team up with Trump, a known climate denier, proves that he is not the ‘conservationist’ he claims to be–no surprise for someone who also claims to live in Pennsylvania when he really lives in Connecticut. This extreme heatwave in the Northeast is a symptom of the excessive pollution Trump and MAGA republicans intend to continue. It’s no secret that Trump has an extensive record of calling climate change a hoax, rolling back 100 environmental protections, opposing clean energy actions, and siding with Big Oil and Big Polluters. But, McCormick is a former hedge fund CEO who supports tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans and Big Oil, and has already committed to rolling back clean energy legislation that would create 200,000 new jobs. 

Meanwhile, Joe Biden and Bob Casey have championed clean energy solutions that have created a boom of good, family-sustaining jobs and are cutting energy bills for everyone. From the heatwaves in the Midwest and East, fires in the West, and a storm forming in the Gulf, people across the country are feeling the impacts of what happens when politicians cater to Big Polluter interests. President Biden is committed to continuing to put the health and safety of our communities, families, and environment first.”
