Warren in Washington
The Senator’s opening remarks included a nod to Washington Governor Jay Inslee, who last week bowed out of the presidential race. Warren said the country owes Inslee a great deal of gratitude for pushing the climate agenda, and vowed to take on the issue if she becomes president.
“I’m going to put a moratorium in place. No new drilling, no new mining on any federal lands or off-shore,” Warren said.
Warren said the climate change debate is evidence of the corruption she promised to tackle head-on by ending “lobbying as we know it” and blocking “the revolving door between Washington and Wall Street.”
