Democratic presidential candidate and Senator Kamala Harris, is a fervent believer that Climate Change is an “existential threat” to the globe, and was one of the early supporters of the “Green New Deal.”

Earlier this year, Harris was asked at a campaign stop in South Carolina about whether she would be voting for the climate change plan, if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) but the resolution up for a vote.

“I will vote for it,” said Harris. “I believe that the underlying principles behind it are sound and important.”

Harris called the vote a “political stunt” because Leader McConnell put the resolution the vote in what many believe was a ploy to get all Democrats on record of supporting the highly unpopular climate change bill.

Harris is sticking to her initial support for the plan, but won’t say if she will vote ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ were the “Green New Deal” come up for another vote.
