The Gambit, Times Picayune back Landrieu for US Senate
Written by 

gambitSenator Mary Landrieu received another major media endorsement from the New Orleans area today with the backing from The Gambit.

Earlier today, the Times Picayune endorsed the current US Senator.

 

In particular, the Gambit stated,  

 As a three-term incumbent and committee chair, Landrieu has incalculable cachet in the Senate….

As three well-known Republican business leaders recently noted, Louisiana cannot afford to lose Mary Landrieu in the Senate. Replacing her with a “rookie” at this crucial time will cost our state billions in federal aid — and many thousands of good jobs….

Landrieu’s Republican opposition has mounted a campaign based on fear, exaggeration (if not outright falsehoods) and anger — most of it funded by out-of-state special interests that do not have Louisiana’s interests at heart….

[Voting against Senator Landrieu] would take away immeasurable clout from Louisiana’s delegation — clout that Landrieu has used to make life better for all of Louisiana.

While her main opponent, Congressman Bill Cassidy, sings a one-note chorus of “Obama, Obama, Obama,” Landrieu reminded voters in last week’s debate (the only debate that Cassidy has attended thus far), President Obama is not on the ballot on Nov. 4 — but Louisiana’s future is. Voters should remember that a vote against Landrieu is a vote against Louisiana’s future.

We strongly urge our readers to vote FOR Louisiana’s future by re-electing Sen. Mary Landrieu.

 

Also, today, the LAGOP taunted Mary Landrieu over the issue of the Ebola travel ban.  

In a press statement, the LAGOP said, "
The Republican Party of Louisiana today asked Senator Mary Landrieu to call for a travel ban to help combat the continued spread of the deadly Ebola virus.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
