Five of the leading Democratic presidential hopefuls have not confirmed their participation in an MSNBC climate forum slated for this week. Front-runner and former Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke, California Sen. Kamala Harris and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar have not committed to being a part of the two-day climate forum to be held at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., a university official confirmed to The Hill.
The candidates' decisions to skip the event would be a departure from the attendance of all of the ten highest polling hopefuls at CNN's 7-hour climate town hall that was held earlier this month. Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg will be the highest-profile Democratic names appearing at the MSNBC event. All three candidates have released individual climate policies.
