Senator Mary Landrieu, will speak at the 2014 Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in New Orleans, where she will outline the clear choice Louisianians have in this year’s Senate election. In her speech, Senator Landrieu will highlight some of the many accomplishments she’s achieved for Louisiana as the state’s senior Senator and how she will continue fighting for Louisiana if re-elected.
Former Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell will present the keynote speech and former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm will be the “Power Up” speaker.
Senator Landrieu will participate in a media availability prior to the start of the dinner.
The Jefferson-Jackson Dinner is hosted by the Louisiana Democratic Party.

What is Congressman Cassidy afraid of?
On July 8, Rob announced he would accept all debate and forum invitations offered to the Senate candidates.
So far, he's accepted seven that are open to all the candidates and even more that are sponsored by Republican organizations for the Republican candidates.
Yesterday, Senator Landrieu accepted four and that's great start... although she should accept more. The people of Louisiana deserve candidates who will make themselves accessible to the voters.
But Congressman Cassidy: he's ducking all the debates.
Congressman Cassidy hasn't accepted any!

In an exclusive interview immediately following the annoucement, L. Martin of NOLA.Tv spoke with Matt Barnes, Vice President of Hunt Construction. Matt said they were excited about the opportunity, not only for their team, but all of their partners in the community. However, right now they have a lot of time to catch up in light of some of the events that took place over the summer. (The reissuing of the RFP bid proposal from the original timeline) NOLA.Tv pounded the question of local participation, and with full confidence and assurrurance, he indicated he was proud of the team in place to make sure the local workforce would be a priority both in training and opportunity.
