Tell the DNC: We need a climate debate

To Tom Perez and the DNC

Show us the rule prohibiting Democratic presidential candidates from participating in non-DNC-sanctioned debates

Tom Perez hasn’t shown the world any document prohibiting candidates from showing up to non-DNC-sanctioned debates. That rule is not in the documents signed by the candidates. And it’s not in the rules passed by the DNC rules committee to date. All he’s been able to provide are some press releases explaining the rule. So where is it, besides his head?

The conduct of the moderators at the June 26-27 debates shows that we need a climate debate, now more than ever.  The questions asked were buried deep in the debates, they were disgracefully framed, and they skated over the surface of the climate crisis. Climate isn’t just another single issue. It’s an overarching, complex problem affecting the economy, national security, jobs, immigration, the finance and real estate industry, the food we eat, and so much more.  We need a debate focused on climate change. And, if Tom Perez is claiming that the DNC has a rule prohibiting candidates from showing up to non-DNC-sanctioned debates, then he needs to show that the rule was approved by the DNC’s rules committee or in the memorandum of understanding signed by the candidates.
