The Keystone XL Pipeline will not pass through Kentucky. But after months of stalling and foot-dragging, US Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes (D-KY) has finally come out in favor of the project. But things, you might say, just got a bit tense.

On the very same day (and mere hours before) she announced her support for it, an environmentalist group staunchly opposed to the project vowed to spend half a million dollars in the state unseating Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY). Oops:

Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes called on President Barack Obama to approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline, joining 11 incumbent Democrats as the party tries to keep control of the Senate this November.
