During the presidential campaign, much of the debate around climate change centered on what Congress should do. That’s an important question, but if history is any guide, it will take time for Congress to settle on a bill — and there is no guarantee of success, even if Democrats beat the odds and end up gaining control of the Senate.

This week, Mike Bloomberg’s Independence USA PAC began airing two new ads, “Like We’ve Never Seen It” and “Middle Class First.” Both TV ads will run statewide on broadcast and cable. With the rise of COVID-19 in Florida, “Like We’ve Never Seen It” highlights Trump’s continued downplaying of the virus and mishandling of the pandemic. “Donald Trump is still ignoring the facts,” the ad says. “With over 220,000 dead, 8 million infected and cases spiking again in Florida, Trump bashes his own medical experts.” “Middle Class First” focuses on Joe Biden’s experience successfully extending tax cuts to Americans as vice president, and his plan to cut taxes for the middle class as president.
