PolitiFact Florida: Dave Weldon claims no wildlife in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

In a TV interview, US Senate candidate Dave Weldon said he supported opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in northeast Alaska.

He emphatically claimed it doesn't have wildlife.

"I have gone up there. It's like a moonscape. There's no trees, there's no animals. They call it the wildlife refuge, but there's absolutely nothing up there. It's just tundra, it's ice. And in my opinion you can drill safely up there," he said.

Don't just guess the rating his statement got from PolitiFact Florida fact-checkers. Read the story here.
