SAN FRANCISCO The Democratic National Committee on Saturday quashed a push from climate activists and some national party members who want a 2020 presidential primary debate devoted exclusively to the climate crisis.
The national party committee voted 222-137 at its summer meeting in San Francisco against a resolution that effectively would have rolled back debate rules set by Chairman Tom Perez and freed presidential candidates to participate in a climate-only debate.
The move drew rebukes from the Sunrise Movement and other activists who say the party leadership is ignoring young voters' priorities.
"The Democratic Party needs the energy and motivation of young people to win in 2020," said Evan Weber, Sunrise Movement political director. "The energy around this issue has been incredibly clear, yet Tom Perez keeps shooting the party in the foot by rejecting that energy and turning it away."

We are doomed. Buwahaaaa.
ANYTHING stupid they see, (which would be ANYTHING they say) will be used against them in the generals.
They’ve already said enough stupid things.
They want to have to defend even more and the DNC knows this would be a disaster in the long run.
They would undoubtedly be asked about coal plants, fracking, drilling on federal land, etc..
And then they would be ruined either way.
And Obama buys yet another beachfront estate.
The Rats know that climate change doesn’t poll well. Bashing Trump does though,for the base.
That f-ing a-hole Obama is laughing his azz off in getting away with a swindle and incredible theft just by being half black and saying bull sh*t to very stupid gullible people. I personally couldn’t live with myself but history has countless scum who “raped” their societies by taking trust and bending them over.
Ha haaaaaa! Poor FredocRATS. Victims of their own success. They’ve got swallowers who think Global Warming is real and something needs to be done about it when really it’s nothing more than a ruse to shake down corporations and raise taxes. I’d love to see that debate.
I love you see you list of Americans priorities in like couple rooming comes in about a number 57 or 58
“...The Democratic Party needs the energy and motivation of young people to win in 2020...”
The Democratic Party needs the ignorance and stupidity of young people to win in 2020.
There. Fixed it.
