Democratic Candidates on Nuclear - Fun Fact: Joe Biden Supports Nuclear Power

Despite not having said much publicly on the topic of nuclear power, Joe Biden DOES support nuclear, and opposed closing of Clinch River when most Democrats voted abandon the project. Andrew Yang has repeatedly expressed support for Thorium Reactors. In town halls, in policy proposal and in his candidacy blog. Popular Mechanics critiqued this proposal by citing solid-fuel challenges, despite there being no indication at all Andrew Yang is proposing solid-fuel reactors... in fact his website is very explicit about funding Thorium MOLTEN-SALT Reactor research.
