Bucking green pressure, Mass. Senate hopeful backs Keystone pipeline

High noon on Friday will come and go, and Stephen Lynch will stick with the Keystone XL pipeline.

The House Democrat from Massachusetts and U.S. Senate hopeful has been threatened by billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer to change his position on the Canada-to-Texas oil pipeline project or face a massive advertising and public relations onslaught in his primary race with Rep. Ed Markey.

Mr. Steyer gave Mr. Lynch a deadline of “high noon” Friday.

In a column for the Boston Globe on Friday, Mr. Lynch said he won’t back down and remains a backer of the controversial pipeline. He also took aim at Mr. Steyer and other environmentalists who, he said, “adopted the same divisive tactics as other special interests — the same tactics that have brought government to a standstill.”

“While most people in Massachusetts are worried about whether they can pay their rent or their student loans next month, out-of-state billionaires like Steyer spend tens of millions … telling them how to vote. I think most Americans are tired of being shoved,” Mr. Lynch wrote. “… Billionaires won’t shove me around.”
