MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem and her democratic challenger in November’s election, Corinna Robinson, disagree on the fate of the Keystone XL pipeline.

Noem and Robinson expressed their differences during a debate Tuesday at the annual DakotaFest farm show in Mitchell.

Noem got the loudest applause of the day after voicing her support for the pipeline’s construction.

Robinson told the audience she sees the pipeline as a long-term mistake because it would jeopardize water supplies with potential leaks.

Keystone is intended to transport over 800,000 barrels of Canadian tar sands oil a day to refineries on the Gulf Coast.

Supporters say the pipeline will aid energy independence. Environmentalists warn of possible spills and say tar sands oil is especially “dirty” and will contribute to global warming.
