Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) may no longer be part of the 2020 Democratic primary race, but his 10-year climate plan is still in the running.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Tuesday announced that she is embracing and expanding on Inslee's plan for 100 percent clean energy. Inslee, who exited the race on Aug. 21, made climate change his top priority, and in a post on Medium, Warren said he "didn't merely sound the alarm or make vague promises. He provided bold, thoughtful, and detailed ideas for how to get us where we need to go, both by raising standards to address pollution and investing in the future of the American economy." She is fully embracing his 10-year plan to decarbonize electricity, cars, and buildings, and is "challenging every other candidate for president to do the same."
