Romney: I’ll build Keystone pipeline even ‘if I have to do it myself’

“I will build that pipeline if I have to do it myself,” Romney said during a speech before state Republican Party leaders gathered at a retreat in Arizona.

It was Romney’s first major appearance before party officials as the party’s presumptive presidential nominee.
