Pryor, Cotton to tour Arkansas pipe company

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor and U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton are among the lawmakers touring a Little Rock pipe manufacturer in an event urging the Obama administration to approve the Keystone XL pipeline.

Monday's event at Welspun Tubular marks a rare joint appearance for Pryor and Cotton, who are running against each other in one of the most expensive and closely watched Senate races in the country.

U.S. Rep. Tim Griffin and state lawmakers are also expected at Monday's event.

The Keystone XL pipeline would cross Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, where it would connect with existing pipelines to reach refineries on the Texas Gulf Coast. The Obama administration announced last month it was delaying a decision on the pipeline's fate indefinitely.
