Three presidential candidates will take part in a New Hampshire forum on global warming, an advocacy group announced today.
Democrat Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico, and Republicans John McCain, the Arizona senator, and Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, are to address 450 business, labor and community leaders at the Global Warming & Energy Solutions conference on Oct. 12-13 in Manchester.
"We applaud these three candidates for choosing to take part in this important forum," said Adam Markham, executive director of Clean Air-Cool Planet, which is sponsoring the conference. "It demonstrates a real concern about climate change, which we think will serve them well in New Hampshire. We hope the other candidates will follow their lead and take advantage of this opportunity to address the voters of New Hampshire on an issue of local and national concern.”
