The Democrats don’t say much about nuclear power, -but the Party seems to be well in favour of it.

During the campaign,The Washington Post questioned Democrat presidential candidates on their views on nuclear power.

At that time 10 Democratic contenders said ”No new plants”
7 said  ”Expand nuclear power”
4 said phase nukes  out
Harris and Biden were among the 6 who at  that time were undecided.
At that time Kamala Harris was no longer running for president.  She said  “So the biggest issue that I believe we face in terms of nuclear energy is the waste and what are we going to do with that,” Harris said at a CNN climate town hall. “We have to make sure that this is not about the federal government coming in and … making decisions about what each state can do in terms of the nuclear waste issue which is the biggest part of the concern about nuclear energy.” When pressed, Harris did not agree to phasing out nuclear power. ”
Harris and Biden waited to see which way the land lay  – (and also what companies would back their campaign?
