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.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
