Despite delay, Keystone XL expected to have a role in 2016 elections


The Keystone XL oil pipeline will be an issue in the 2016 presidential election even if the project's builder has asked the Obama administration to halt its review, experts said Tuesday.

Glenn Bolger, partner and co-founder of Public Opinion Strategies, said the pipeline is an easily definable issue for the public. That alone will make it a talking point in the upcoming election, as voters will be able to see a black-and-white difference between the candidates.
