Climate Candidate Jay Inslee Leaves Legacy as He Drops Out

Enlarge this image

Inslee and fellow climate alarmist Al Gore had tried to twist arms at the Democratic National Committee to create a standalone climate debate for presidential candidates.

Inslee continued by saying that those 130,000 donors proves to him the support that defeating climate change has "among the grassroots of his party".

"Yeah, I think we've complimented the aspirations of the Green New Deal. which, by the way, I think has been very helpful to the cause", Inslee explained.

Inslee has been a long-shot candidate since he announced his presidential ambitions in March.

Three Democrats - state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz, and King County Executive Dow Constantine - had indicated they would be interested in running for governor if Inslee didn't run for re-election. "Mr Inslee raised the bar for what's expected of the next president on climate".

Inslee was invited by the conservative Heartland Institute to attend its 13annual International Conference on Climate Change to debate his climate policy.

The Washington State Republican Party quickly pounced on Inslee's candidacy. That's not to say that Inslee is entirely wrong about the awful format - I've written about that myself - but that wasn't Inslee's problem.

Larry King divorcing seventh wife Shawn Southwick after almost 22 years
The CNN host had previously been married seven times (to six other women ), while Shawn was married three times before. The former celebrity couple shares two sons together, Chance Armstrong King , 20, and Cannon Edward King , 19.

Inslee declined to endorse another candidate during the segment. In fact, on the day he dropped out of the race, he released his sixth and final installment, titled "Growing Rural Prosperity". Inslee presented himself as a leader who would push other candidates to give the issue more attention.

USA voters have have rarely considered climate change a top-priority presidential election issue. The cable news network said candidates would need to win the support of 2 percent of likely voters in four polls by next week.

Mr Inslee announced his decision on MSNBC on Wednesday night, telling presenter Rachael Maddow that "it's become clear" that he would not become president. Candidates may be talking about climate change, he told me on August 10 over a beer at Waters Edge Bar & Grill in Polk City, Iowa, but none understand what it will take to prevent the potentially catastrophic effects of a warming planet.

"Together, we changed and shaped the entire national dialogue around climate change", Inslee wrote in an email to supporters announcing the end of his presidential campaign.

While he had qualified for the first two presidential debates this summer, Inslee struggled to gain traction in the crowded Democratic field and was falling short of the requirements needed to appear on two high-profile stages next month: the third DNC debate in Houston and a CNN town hall focused on climate change, Inslee's key issue. The people of Washington are fortunate to have a Governor who fights to make their lives better now & to protect our planet for the future.

"We are an optimistic America that can do big things", Inslee said at the Seattle event where he kicked off his campaign.
