TOM SMITH COMMENTS ON KEYSTONE PIPELINE VOTE

(Pittsburgh, PA) – Tom Smith, Republican candidate for United States Senate, today released the following statement after an amendment to approve the Keystone energy pipeline was defeated in the Senate:

 

“Today we witnessed a rare example of Senator Casey parting with his 98% support of President Obama’s anti-growth agenda in an election year,” said Smith. “However, the Keystone Pipeline failed again, and tens of thousands of new jobs were again sacrificed for the appeasement of liberal special interests. Senator Casey failed to demonstrate leadership and fight for the approval of this project and the creation of American jobs.”
