With the exit of Gov. Martin O'Malley, Sen. Bernie Sanders and Sec. Hillary Clinton will be one on one for the first time during tonight's debate in New Hampshire. Click here to RSVP to watch with us and contribute real time commentary on who wins for our climate and why.
The voters are finally being heard. The Iowa caucuses were a real squeaker with the two Democratic front-runners, Sen. Sanders and Sec. Clinton finishing so close to one another that some of the precincts were decided by coin tosses.1 It's now clear that this ballgame will be played the full nine innings. With the suspension of Gov. O'Malley's campaign, Sanders and Clinton are now in a two person race for the Democratic nomination. Tonight is their first face off since Iowa and we want to watch with you!
Many new themes may be discussed now that it's a two person race: Both candidates have been sparring over social media, in the news and on campaign stops about who's more progressive.2 But we haven't gotten to their differences on how best to protect our climate. Will either of them commit to keeping 80 percent of fossil fuels in the ground or ending subsidies to the fossil fuel industry? There's only one way to find out -- tune in and watch the debate with us at tonight at 9 PM EST. Click here to RSVP your spot.
This is the last time that voters in New Hampshire will see a live, televised debate before they vote. I sincerely believe it could change the whole scope of the election. Let's find out together which direction it goes as we get closer to electing the successor to President Obama. Click here to save your spot at our debate party tonight at 9PM EST.
