Democrat Mary Landrieu and Republican Bill Cassidy ??? raced to be the first to hold a vote on the Keystone XL pipeline as the two are engaged in a Senate run-off. Fresh off the campaign trail, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., implored Senate Republicans Wednesday to allow a vote on the Keystone XL pipeline in the lame duck session, saying it would be a good moment for future Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to work in a bipartisan manner.
