    Senate Democrats reject bill to build oil pipeline



    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Democrat-controlled Senate has defeated a bill to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

    The Senate's 59-41 vote Tuesday night was a nail-biter to the end.

    The bill needed 60 votes to reach the White House. The House passed it overwhelmingly last week.

    President Barack Obama did not support the bill, but the White House has been mum on whether or not he will veto it.

    Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu pushed for the vote in an effort to save her seat in a Dec. 6 runoff election in Louisiana. She faces an uphill battle against Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy, who authored the House bill.

    Its deserved, for walking away from President Obama, yep!



    GO FIGURE: Sen. Mary Landrieu's uphill climb


    — In every one of Louisiana's 64 parishes, Landrieu lost votes from her 2008 level. While that's not entirely unexpected given lower voter participation in midterm elections, the depth of Landrieu's losses compared with her Republican rivals is notable. She lost at least 5,000 votes in 21 parishes, at least 10,000 in nine parishes, at least 20,000 in four parishes, and 30,000-plus in East Baton Rouge and Jefferson parishes. Her smallest loss in an individual parish was 556 votes in sparsely populated East Carroll Parish, but even that was almost 20 percent of her 2008 total there.
