'What would you ask the candidates?'

On Sunday morning the Governor was asked what questions he would ask of Hillary Clinton on the debate stage. Here was his answer:

"I would ask her what sort of ideas she has to make our economy work again for all of us. And, whether or not she has the independence to rein in the kind of recklessness on Wall Street that tanked our economy once and threatens to do it again.

"I am in favor of reinstituting Glass-Steagall, I am in favor of putting robust prosecutorial efforts back on Wall Street.

"As a candidate for President, each of us needs to state unequivocally whether we're for reinstituting Glass-Steagall, whether we're against the Trans-Pacific Partnership. I'm against the keystone pipeline—where does she stand? These are the kinds of things you can only have answered in a debate."

Unfortunately, given the limited debate schedule that the DNC has proposed, early voters will have barely any opportunity to have their questions asked before they decide on a candidate. As it stands now, the DNC is only holding 6 debates, and only ONE in Iowa before they caucus, and ONE in New Hampshire before their primary.

Compared to previous years, that's unprecedented. That's why we want to give you an opportunity to submit your own questions for the candidates. We'll collect your questions and send them to the DNC along with a note telling them that #WeNeedDebate.

Here's what's more: we'll answer the most-asked questions of ALL candidates on our website in the next week. That way you'll know exactly where O'Malley stands on the issues.

I am proud to work for a candidate who is not only willing to tell you his positions well before the primaries, but who is also willing and eager to debate his positions on stage with the other candidates.

We cannot let party bosses in DC limit the opportunity for voters to have critical questions answered. Submit your question today!

thanks,

Lis

1. I have a question

How long do we have to get ready for global warming? And how do you propose we begin?

4. Since he's not a scientist, I wouldn't expect he could answer that well.

O'Malley has the best platform and credentials of any of the 2016 candidates when it comes to global warming. He has published several policy positions relevant to climate change and made clear it is a high priority for his administration.

I used this opportunity to ask a question where it appears his position is not known. We'll see if he answers it.

3. Thanks for posting this. I asked my question.

I hope it is one of the "most asked" so that it gets answered.
