Beto O’Rourke is "supportive of the concept" of a Green New Deal and "is looking forward to engaging more on the issue," a spokesperson told HuffPost.
Why it matters: O’Rourke is the latest potential presidential candidate to back the general concept of a progressive climate proposal that aims for zero carbon emissions and more green jobs. An aide for Sen. Elizabeth Warren told Axios earlier this week that she also supports the "idea" of a Green New Deal.
