Politifact Virginia: Senator Mark Warner and the Keystone Pipeline


In this week's Politifact Virginia report- Republican Senate candidate Ed Gillespie is hoping to make the Keystone Pipeline a major issue in his campaign.


Here's what he said about Warner in a recent email: "He (Warner) likes to tell us he supports Keystone Pipeline, but his record is one of acting against it."


Is that true? Is Warner really working to stop the pipeline? 

Politifact rates that claim "mostly false". According Sean Gorman, Warner has done far more to move the project ahead than stand in its way. 

"Although we've found one vote that could be seen as a vote that Warner had made that could be seen as a post against the pipeline, there's also other actions Warner has taken in support of the pipeline," he said.
