Pryor joins other red-state Democrats pushing Obama to approve Keystone pipeline

Posted By on Thu, Apr 10, 2014 at 12:34 PM

Sen. Mark Pryor is one of a eleven Senate Democrats who sent a letter to President Obama pushing him to approve the Keystone XL pipeline, the Wall Street Journal reports. The senators want a decision by the end of May. 

The letter, organized by Pryor's pal in red-state-Dem quivering Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana (like Pryor, facing a tough-re-election fight), states: 

This process has been exhaustive in its time, breadth, and scope. It has already taken much longer than anyone can reasonably justify. This is an international project that will provide our great friend and ally Canada, a direct route to our refineries.

Yet another spot where Pryor is trying to distance himself from Reid, Obama and various other Washington bogeymen. 

For good background on the risks and questionable need of the pipeline, head on over to ClimateNews, who partnered with the Times on our coverage of the Mayflower oil spill.
