Rev. Al Sharpton has remained officially neutral so far in the presidential contest between Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders, but in comments to reporters Thursday, he dropped some pretty clear hints about his sympathies.
Sanders had shown "character" in marching with Martin Luther King Jr. in the 1960s, Sharpton said, but "tell me what you've done this century."
"The last march was not with Dr. King," he added. Sharpton made his comments at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio affirmed at the Republican presidential debate Thursday that he would oppose all efforts by the U.S. government to curb global warming.
“As far as a law that we can pass in Washington to change the weather, there’s no such thing,” Rubio said in response to a question about the increasing frequency of Miami street flooding due to rising sea levels.
Rubio pounded President Obama for his efforts against global warming, saying all of the legislation and regulation he has pushed in that area would “devastate our economy.”
