Washington, D.C. — In response to the final 2020 presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, LCV Victory Fund issued the following statement from Senior Vice President of Campaigns Pete Maysmith:

“The character of our country is on the ballot and only Joe Biden will treat the converging crises our country is facing with the empathy and seriousness they deserve — he is the climate president we need.

“We saw more climate and environmental justice questions asked in presidential debates this cycle than ever before, and the majority of voters casting their ballots in this election want to see action on climate. In fact, the latest New York Times/Siena College poll found that 66 percent of voters support Biden’s bold plan to put our economy on a path to recovery by making transformative investments in healthy, equitable, safe communities powered by clean energy. If elected, Joe Biden will have the strongest mandate to act on climate and environmental justice of any president-elect in history. Let’s make that a reality.”
