Landrieu vs. Cassidy vs. Maness

This week, the fight for Louisiana US Senate turns to Mary Landrieu’s efforts to get mileage out of Bill Cassidy’s limited debates versus the latter’s focus upon Senator Landrieu’s travel records.
Here are the latest tweets:

Mary Landrieu @MaryLandrieu
Transparency and a willingness to debate takes a backseat for Rep. Cassidy >>>

Bill Cassidy @BillCassidy
Senator Landrieu emphatically said she would release all 16 of flight records, but she did not:…

What might be the impact of Cassidy’s refusal to debate?
Six years ago, Landrieu who wanted to limit the debates.  Her main opponent there was Treasurer John Kennedy.  This campaign season, most of the polls show that Cassidy is leading, thus, has limited reasons to debate.
So, what happens with the other scheduled televised debates?  Will Rob Maness, the Tea Party favorite and Landrieu still go forward?  If so, will they incessantly blast the absent Cassidy while jabbing at one another now and then?   Then, with one of the top two candidates not appearing, will anybody be watching?

Vitter and Term Limits
US Senator David Vitter, who made his Louisiana legislative mark as a champion for term limits, is now taking up the charge after being in Congress for roughly 15 years.
Vitter is running for Louisiana Governor, which election is in 2015.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Louisiana has endured adverse credit rating changes since edwards midDemocrat Gov. John Bel Edwards assumed office, completing a downgrade trifecta last week.
