  • Democrats criticized Craft at her confirmation hearing for previous remarks she had made doubting the causes and severity of climate change and suggesting that climate change skeptics have valid arguments.
  • A report just before Craft’s confirmation vote by the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, called her “inexperienced,” ”unknowledgeable” and “outmatched”.
  • Republicans, including her home-state senator, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, came to her defense.
