Landrieu Clout Comes Up Empty on Keystone

After months of inaction, Sen. Mary Landrieu finally got around to acting on a bill to build the Keystone Pipeline, but failed to muster the votes necessary to build the pipeline. Landrieu went all in on Keystone in a desperate bid to save her Senate career, but her clout came up empty yet again on an issue critical to energy jobs in Louisiana. 

Senator Landrieu desperately launched this Hail Mary attempt only to have her own team bat it down.

“Dr. Cassidy kept his promise to the people of Louisiana for a ninth time, but yet again Sen. Landrieu failed to do the same,” LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere said. “Once again it is clear that Senator Landrieu’s clout is nothing more than a talking point from her increasingly lost re-election campaign.”
