Why Keystone XL is Not Going to Go Away

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) – North Dakota Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp says President Barack Obama made a mistake in blocking the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

Heitkamp issued a statement Wednesday calling the Democratic president’s decision “the wrong one, plain and simple.”

Heitkamp says if she’s elected to the Senate, she’ll work with Republican Sen. John Hoeven to reverse the president’s decision.

Heitkamp says in a statement she’ll do this “even if it means upsetting members of my own party.”

The pipeline would take oil from Canada to refineries on the Gulf of Mexico.

Heitkamp says the project would create jobs, lower the cost of fuel and decrease the nation’s dependence on oil imported from overseas.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rick Berg was also critical of the president’s decision Wednesday.

The conventional wisdom in North Dakota is that Heitkamp doesn’t have much in the over-whelming Republican state.
