US Senate David Vitter, who mastered the use of digital advertising and promotions for his recent US Senate campaign, is once again leading the pack in another election, in this case, using it to GET OUT THE VOTE for Congressman Bill Cassidy in the upcoming mid-term elections.
With two weeks (and counting) left in the Louisiana US Senate race between Mary Landrieu, Rob Maness and Bill Cassidy, some believe the question is whether Mary Landrieu can eek out a victory in the jungle primary or worse for her, win a head-to-head battle against the most-likely opponent, Cassidy.
One Republican lawmaker has a solution to what Louisiana should do with a budget surplus, should it really exist.

According to the political press, Bobby Jindal launched another one of his embarrassing broadsides against the awful “DC establishment,” calling for a “hostile takeover” of DC by enraged teahaddists.
The media is talking Louisiana Senator David Vitter, now candidate for governor. The conservative critic of Obamacare and almost everything Obama met the Baton Rouge Press Club on Monday and made some stunning comments responses to reporters' questions.

The newest commercial in Mary Landrieu's election campaign features her father, former Mayor of New Orleans Moon Landrieu. According to NOLA.com, "the ad features the father and daughter engaging in casual banter in the living room of the family's New Orleans home."
While it might not have come as a surprise that LAGOP Chairman Roger Villere and Gov. Bobby Jindal have called for McAllister’s resignation after the now infamous kissing video, many have questioned where the party was when David Vitter’s name was found on the calling list of an escort agency in Washington, D.C. Vitter was not asked to resign, and recently he has announced that he is running for Governor in 2015. Is this a prime example of political hypocrisy, or is it a reasonable strategy from LAGOP before the important US Senate election later this year? Stephen Sabludowsky, Bernie Pinsonat, and WGSO radio caller-David Bellinger, a.k.a. The Flaming Liberal, discuss.
