Inslee completes climate change policy proposals with plans aimed at agriculture

(CNN) Washington Gov. Jay Inslee released a plan on Wednesday to enlist farmers and agriculture workers in combating climate change, completing the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate's series of proposals aimed at making fighting a warming climate a central part of the federal government's policies.

Inslee's latest plan -- titled "Growing Rural Prosperity" -- ties revitalizing rural America and ending President Donald Trump's trade wars together with incentivizing farmers to take steps that help remove carbon emissions from the atmosphere.

Inslee, who has staked his candidacy on combating climate change, has released a series of plans that tie different issues facing the United States -- from the economy to foreign policy -- to battling climate change. Wednesday's plan is his sixth such proposal and, according to a senior aide, his final major climate policy rollout.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee drops out of presidential race

Democratic Washington Gov. Jay Inslee on Wednesday announced he is suspending his presidential campaign.

Inslee made the announcement during an interview on MSNBC.

The Washingtonian made combating climate change the fundamental issue motivating his campaign, routinely telling reporters that the climate crisis affects "every issue" facing the country. With that in mind, he released a series of plans that tied the issue to everything from foreign policy to the economy to labor laws.

But the governor failed to gain traction in the race to take on President Donald Trump. While the governor did recently reach the donor threshold to qualify for the third Democratic national debate, he had yet to reach the polling threshold and was therefore unlikely to qualify.

I'm hoping we will. That was an impressive move onto the national stage, IMO.
