Louisiana US Senate candidate, Maness, hits John Fleming on his support of Boehner

  Republican U.S. Rep. John Fleming, who has a hefty campaign fund and deep pockets, is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by U.S. Sen. David Vitter.  The election is this November.

   It is not surprising, therefore, that Fleming was the first Senate candidate to appear on FOX television stations statewide with a paid political ad. But as soon as it hit the airways, he got some immediate blow-back.
    Fleming’s ad, entitled “Not Easy,” was basically a “feel-good” bio piece to introduce him to voters statewide and make them aware of his conservative credentials.
    In the ad, it said, “He’s even taken on his own party, leading the way in removing John Boehner as Speaker of the House.  It wasn’t easy.  It was just the right thing to do.”
    Well, that statement caught the eagle eyes of the political gurus with the campaign of retired Air Force Colonel Rob Maness, who is also running for the U.S. Senate seat.
    Andrew Surabian, campaign manager for Maness, was quick to throw the first punch among the GOP candidates, which could be a sign of things to come, akin to the recent governor’s race.
    He said, “It’s disappointing that John Fleming’s first TV ad contains a complete falsehood.  While most members of the House Freedom Caucus actually voted against John Boehner for Speaker, John Fleming voted for Boehner three times.”
    Surabian went on to say, “Fleming says he represents change, but he’s really just another Washington insider who will say or do anything to climb the political ladder.”
    Adding fuel to the fire, he challenged Fleming to publicly oppose Sen. Mitch McConnell for Republican Leader, something which Maness has already done.
    Enclosed with the Maness press release were links to three videos of Fleming’s votes for Boehner for Speaker of the House.
    This may be the first, but it won’t be the last time these two tangle during the campaign because both are hoping to woo Tea Party voters and those on the conservative right.

It must be nice when you can get the rules written just for you.

There must come a time when even the most disinterested, blasé, apolitical person living has to look up from whatever else occupies his interest and say, “Wait a damned minute. This just ain’t right and we’re not gonna do it.”
