Claims to fame: The former congressman has touted his $9 trillion climate action plan as the best among the candidates, arguing America's "fatal addiction" to gas, oil and coal is "killing us, literally, and it's destroying our climate."

Miami moment: He touted his plan to fight climate change but stumbled by claiming he was the only one advancing abortion rights with three female senators on stage.
