EPA published a finalized version of its global warming rule in the Federal Register Friday and it wasn’t long before New Hampshire Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte bucked her own party and came out in support of the rule.
“It’s so important that we protect New Hampshire’s beautiful environment for our economy and for our future,” Ayotte said in a statement Sunday
“After carefully reviewing this plan and talking with members of our business community, environmental groups, and other stakeholders, I have decided to support the Clean Power Plan to address climate change through clean energy solutions that will protect our environment,” she said.
Ayotte is facing reelection in 2016 and could be fending off attacks from Democrats over her stance on global warming. On the other hand, Ayotte has received sizable donations from a rich donor concerned about global warming and green energy.
Breaking 7-Year Tradition, Bloggers Invite Republican Walter Jones To Conversation

For the first time in seven years, progressive activists who generally spend their energy targeting conservative Democrats reached out to a Republican House member and invited him to chat with their liberal community. Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), a war critic and thorn in the side of the GOP leadership, accepted the invitation and engaged the progressives in a mostly friendly back and forth on Monday.
The online interview was announced at
and hosted by Howie Klein at Blue America.
In 2011, Jones told The Huffington Post that if House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) didn’t reinstitute a moment of silence for troops who had died under Nancy Pelosi’s watch, he would embarrass the speaker by introducing a resolution calling for it. The article led to a confrontation on the House floor between Jones and Boehner’s then-chief of staff Barry Jackson, according to Robert Draper’s Do Not Ask What Good We Do.
