ā€œWeā€™re extremely disappointed to see any Democratic Senatorsā€™ procedural vote in favor of David Bernhardt, a deeply conflicted nominee with a troubling record of climate denial. Bernhardt has a history of rewriting scientific findings to suit industry – fake news before it was called ā€˜fake news.ā€™ We hope that climate hawk Senators like Brian Schatz, Martin Heinrich, and Angus King will listen to their constituentsā€™ strong support for action on climate change before the next vote whether to confirm Bernhardt,ā€ says RL Miller.

The Senate voted 56-39 on the motion to invoke cloture on the Bernhardt nomination. All Republicans voted for the nominee. The members of the Democratic caucus who voted for cloture: Michael Bennet (D-CO), Brian Schatz (D-HI), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Martin Heinrich (D-NM), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV); and Angus King (I-ME). Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) and Patrick Leahy (D-VT) did not vote.
