Billionaire activist Tom Steyer admits that Terry McAuliffe is no Sen. Ed Markey when it comes to championing energy and environmental issues.
But he says the Virginia Democrat has a strong green record that justifies putting big money into his campaign for governor…
So far, Steyer’s work in Virginia has focused more on painting Cuccinelli as corrupt than on climate change specifically.
Asked why the campaign hasn’t focused more directly on climate change, the issue that is at the center of his political work, Steyer said: “This is not the Yale-Harvard debating society. You have to talk to people in terms that are meaningful for them.”
