Do pipelines pose any political risk for Northam? (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Stephen Farnsworth, a political science professor at the University of Mary Washington, isn’t so sure there won’t be political consequences. And Northam would be smart to align himself more closely with the pipeline opponents, Farnsworth said.

“There’s not a lot of upside for a Democrat to take the side of Dominion on this issue,” he said. “Northam’s political future, whatever it may be, would be helped rather than hurt by an aggressive stand in favor of environmental activists and property rights activists.”
