Democratic presidential hopefuls are hitting up potential donors after their participation in the seven-hour-long event.
After participating in CNN's 10-candidate, seven-hour-long climate town-hall extravaganza on Wednesday night, some of the leading candidates for president are using the event to pitch potential donors.
The Bernie Sanders campaign blasted a fundraising request pegged to the network's event on Thursday morning. "Last night I joined 9 other Democratic presidential candidates at CNN's Climate Town Hall, and there is no question that our Green New Deal plan to address the climate emergency is the most ambitious plan of anyone else in this race," the candidate wrote. "The fossil fuel industry will do everything they can to protect their profits, and they have an obscene amount of money that they will spend to try to defeat us. That is why I need your help to build the grassroots movement that can take them on and win."
Late Wednesday night, Mayor Pete Buttigieg's campaign blasted an email with the subject line "What Pete Said on CNN." The campaign told potential donors, "If you believe in what Pete said in tonight's town hall and his comprehensive plan to rally America to meet the climate crisis then help our campaign win and stop a climate catastrophe: Chip in a donation to build our campaign now."

This CNN/DNC ‘message’ isn’t captivating people out in the heartland. They better start working on a plan ‘B’ for 2020.
Amazingly stupid people. Im not a political savvy guy when it comes to campaigns, but even my 6 year old grandson knows this is BS.
I think these people are skimming donor money into their bank accounts. no other explanation for it. How are these morons going to debate Trump?
After participating in CNN’s 10-candidate, seven-hour-long climate town-hall extravaganza on Wednesday night,
I don’t see how a low rated snoozefest can be an extravaganza .
Astonishing how typically normal people now think global warming is real just because Dorian stayed in the Bahamas for 2-days. Look I am all for clean air and water. Thats as far as I think we need to go. Instead of wasting time on carbon nonsense. Why not clean the pipes that need it to help communities with cleaning their water? Thatd be cheaper and actually gove a positive effect for people.
On the debate format...the journalist will first tell Trump that global warming is real, and he should react....to which he will have to go into a deny-statement, and then the Democrat guy/gal will already have the question already in his pocket, and provide three minutes of dramatic woeful talking (almost weeping) and sum up the answer.
But like you say...it’s not coming across to regular people or even teenagers. If the world is ending in twelve years, then I’ve got better things to spend my money on (booze, women and trips to Aruba). I wouldn’t hand it to a Democrat to spend to the bitter end.
Con artists separating fools from their money—even a monkey can do it!
Comcast/CNN donated a 7-hour campaign commercial to the candidates and the communist party.
Im waiting for straight America loving traditional believers 7 hour town hall. I think I will have a long wait
It’s all about the Benjamins.
All Trump has to do is ask the journalist to explain the scientific mechanism of global warming. As I suggested in an earlier thread:
Question: can you explain the mechanism by which carbon dioxide stores an amount of solar energy disproportionate to its molecular weight or its concentration in the atmosphere, and describe how that mechanism overshadows other known mechanisms of heat storage in the atmosphere, such that the quantity of carbon dioxide, and no other chemical, is responsible for the climate cycles that have existed on the earth since its formation?
Not a single global warming fanatic would be able to answer.
I am certain that the ignorant nut jobs, edjacated by the NEA and AFT will anxiously queue up to throw their money away.
I hope Pete throws the typical liberal debate technique back in their faces: Since only he has announced publicly that he is gay, only he has the right to speak on this topic. (Booker, here’s your opportunity to come out of the closet.)
Their models cannot predict where Dorian would be tomorrow, let alone next week.
And they want us to believe said model can accurately predict climate 10 or 15 years out
President Trump has a canned response that has worked up to this time.
Journalist : Carbon Carbon Carbon crisis.
President Trump : I stand for crystal clear water and clean air.
Everyone can agree on clean air and water
