DES MOINES, Iowa, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday that she opposes the Keystone XL pipeline.

"I have a responsibility to you and other voters," Clinton, a former secretary of state, said at a town hall event in Iowa.

"I think it is imperative that we look at the Keystone pipeline as what I believe is the distraction from the important work we have to do to combat climate change."

"Therefore, I oppose it," she said. (Reporting by Alana Wise; Editing by Tim Ahmann)
