Dole Checks Polls and Then Opposes Land Sale

After weeks of nothing from Dole on the proposed land sale, apparently she sees just enough opposition to the sale to talk against it. The Wilmington-Star quotes Dole as saying:

However, I do not believe it is a wise investment to sell our public lands in return for short-term funding of a program that deserves full funding on its own – especially when the lands have been selected without the input of local communities and park rangers.

Of course, we would expect nothing less of our senators when the state is being screwed by the proposal (as SD has pointed out); however, we have received less in the past.
