Our message at the DNC is, if you’re worried about preexisting conditions, worried about climate change .... the Democratic Party is your party’

BRZEZINSKI: "The complete pullout from the Paris climate agreement wouldn’t take place until November 4th, 2020, one day after the next presidential election. About that time, former Obama senior adviser Brian Deese tweeted that Paris will be on the ballot. Joining us now, deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee, Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota. Congressman, why don't we start there? Is that going to be a winning issue for Democrats?"
ELLISON: "Well, for all Americans. I mean all Americans who have been hit by the superstorms like Sandy and Katrina and many others. They are worried about climate change and yes, it will be on the ballot. Our message at the DNC is, if you’re worried about preexisting conditions, worried about climate change, worried about financial reform and control in Wall Street, the Democratic Party is your party and the party we need you to get involved in right now."
