Progressives Notch an Early Climate Change Win at San Fran DNC Meeting (but Committee as a Whole Still to Go)

The allies of DNC Chairman Tom Perez favored – but failed to advance – a resolution that allowed for a climate-change “town hall” but not a full-fledged debate.

In an animated mood, progressive activists prevailed on the resolutions and bylaws committee today in advance of a full vote on the issue on Saturday by DNC members.
