Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich spoke directly to Canadians at a campaign stop in Tampa Monday, vowing to kick-start the Keystone XL pipeline on his first day in the Oval Office.We don't vote in your primary, Mr. Newt. And if we did, we surely would not be voting for you.
“I want to promise Canadians on the very first day I will sign an executive order authorizing construction [of Keystone] as of that day,” Mr. Gingrich said at a rally here. “Canadians will know on election night they do not have to build a pipeline across the Rockies.”
Oh, sure, probably a last minute jobs appeal he's making in Florida. With an international heft type thing he's invoking. Not sure the Floridians are big on this one though. It is another sign, however, that this issue is not going to be left to die due to Republican perseverance.
