Bennet in Iowa


In addition to the electoral math, Bennet connected his purple state appeal to how Democrats can achieve some of the ambitious plans on their agenda like climate change.

“If you accept our current politics — which is McConnel’s world, Trump’s world — I would argue that you can’t solve climate change because we are living in a world right now where I put my ideas in for two years, the other side rips them out. I put them in for four years, the other side rips them out. … You can’t solve climate (change) two years at a time,” Bennet said. “Yes we have to act urgently, but we have to act in a way that will create durable solutions.”
