Arkansas Senate Candidate: Midterms Will Determine U.S. Energy Policy

RealClearPolitics reports that “Republican Rep. Tom Cotton, running in one of the most competitive and consequential U.S. Senate races this year, said Thursday that the outcome of the midterm elections could determine ‘whether we will actually harness the energy resources that our country has.’”  

“Speaking at an event sponsored by RealClearPolitics and the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, the conservative lawmaker said a GOP-controlled Congress would likely approve the Keystone XL pipeline and review Environmental Protection Agency regulations, among other energy-related policies, and that he would support votes leading to greater gas and oil exploration.”  

The event covers additional topics, too, including: Carbon tax, energy strategy, and the energy boom’s impact on the economic recovery.
