"Backers of Oil Terminal Pour Money Into Washington Port Race"

"SEATTLE -- Developers of a proposed oil-by-rail terminal that would be the largest in the nation have poured big money into a port commissioner race in Washington state that may shape the project's future.

Backers of the Vancouver Energy project have given $370,000 in cash to support Kris Greene, who has expressed support for the terminal proposed at the Port of Vancouver, according to filings with the Washington Public Disclosure Commission.

That represents the bulk of the cash he has raised in the Vancouver port commissioner's race."
