2014 Elections May Center on Climate Change, Energy

 

As the 2014 congressional and senatorial elections near, one key issue that both sides are planning to capitalize on is the various candidates’ positions on climate change and energy.

 

Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a prime target of the Democrats in their zeal to protect their majority in the Senate, is castigating Barack Obama for what is often termed Obama’s “war on coal.” McConnell is being challenged in the GOP primary and then must face Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes, Kentucky’s Secretary of State. McConnell wants to link Lundergan Grimes to Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed regulations that would harshly regulate carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants. McConnell notes that the regulations would hurt energy jobs.
