vitter-teaOne Maness standing (Or Maness Up)

Louisiana Republican Rep. Paul Hollis, former self-funded candidate for US Senate is now in lockstep with the mainstream Republican Party.  He is supporting Bill Cassidy for the Senate spot against Democrat Mary Landrieu.  This means, the last person standing other than Mary Landrieu and Cassidy is Col. Rob Maness, the Tea Party favorite.  Maness has the supporter of speedster Sarah Palin, the one-time Alaskan Governor, VP nominee and now Indianapolis 500 “qualifier”, after her recent speeding violation.

capitol-dcIf Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy wishes to confirm his conservative credentials in his contest to knock off Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu, he should vote to end welfare to big businesses and discrimination against private banks, and not become what fellow Republican Rep. Charles Boustany has on the issue of reauthorization of the U.S. Export-Import Bank.

landrieu-cassidy

It’s not surprising that Republican state Rep. Paul Hollis announced his exit from the U.S. Senate race this fall, because it never made much sense for him to enter it in the first place if he thought he could win.

That’s not because Hollis is not a conservative, with a three-year average score on the Louisiana Legislature Log voting index of just under 75 (well above the chamber and a bit above the GOP legislative averages, where 100 shows always voting for the conservative/reform preference). That’s not because Hollis has not demonstrated that he can win elections and has experience in a significant elective office, as he got himself elected to his position in 2011. It is that he got in the contest later than the two other Republican candidates who carved out space in both of these areas.

Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy has proven conservative credentials and almost six years’ experience in national government, including putting into law a significant item or two (for example, being one of the main forces behind getting markedly higher flood insurance rates for some homeowners delayed and lowered). But if somebody doesn’t like that Cassidy didn’t vote the conservative issue preference every single time and/or that he’s been in Congress all that time, then for you there’s absolutely politically inexperienced Republican Rob Maness who claims he can vote more conservatively than Cassidy.
