But both Democratic incumbents were no better than 50-50 prior to the decision to delay Keystone, the delay may make those odds 49-51 for their re-election but that decision probably helps in several other states in keeping what the Democrats hopes their base fired up enough to get them to the polls. Apparently the Democrats think they can afford to lose Arkansas and Louisiana. But the decision may help them in Michigan, North Carolina, Colorado, Iowa and perhaps Alaska.
