LCV Victory Fund Statement on the First Debate
Washington, D.C. — In response to the first presidential debate of the general election, LCV Victory Fund released the following statement from Senior Vice President of Campaigns Pete Maysmith:
“Vice President Biden proved what we’ve known since the start of this race: He will listen to scientists and experts, act to protect the country from the threats we face, make the largest-ever investment to combat climate change, address environmental injustice, and create 10 million good-paying jobs — that’s the leadership our country needs. Trump tried to bully and lie his way out of his disastrous record on racial justice, climate change and democracy. He’s failed the country on coronavirus, just like he’s failing us on climate. The cost of his refusal to listen to experts and science is only surpassed by his refusal to condemn white supremacists. The end of Trump’s racist, disastrous presidency cannot come soon enough.”
