CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA (NEWSPLEX) -- U.S. Senator Mark Warner will not take an official stance on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
He also says the $90,000 his campaign received in contributions from Dominion Resources does not impact his opinion of the project.
“It doesn’t affect my decision,” said Warner. “I’ve got a lot of folks in Nelson County who voted for me and contributed to me when I ran for governor, when I ran for senator the first time, you know. When I vote on this position, I’m going to do what’s int he best interest for Virginia and the country. The challenge here is maintaining property rights, maintaining the historic nature of a lot of this region, and at the same time recognizing that we’ve got to have a cleaner energy mix.”
He met with people in Nelson County Tuesday evening to discuss the latest on the ACP.
