GOP Planning To Use Obama's Climate Change Agenda Against Democrats in 2014

"War on Coal" could be used against Democrats in coal-producing states

|

Foes of President Obama's alleged "war on coal" climate plan are hoping to use the combustible issue to tarnish Democrats in the next round of elections. 

The political backlash started almost immediately after the president announced last week he's ordering the EPA to draft new rules to limit emissions at coal-fired power plants. 

In Virginia, it didn't take long for Republican gubernatorial candidate Ken Cuccinelli to label the plan the "Obama-Biden-McAuliffe war on coal," in his race for governor against former Democratic Party chairman Terry McAuliffe.
