Dead Heat: US Senate
The conservative publication, Townhall, reported on Wednesday that thed Louisiana US Senate poll is a dead heat.
We now discover just how deep was Sen. Mary Landrieu’s hand into the cookie jar by her self-revelation that over two-fifths of all her air charter travel since 2002 had some portion illegally charged to taxpayers. What’s not new is the inadequacies in her trying to explain it away.
Things are not going well for Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy these days in his race against incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, who is seeking a fourth six-year term.
It’s interesting how six years and a comparatively inferior electoral position can change the tune of Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu as she finds out what life’s like being the underdog.
Some quick thoughts on some of the political stories found on the web:
While she’s getting a Maness-churian candidate assist on the subject, the very nature of the issue’s dynamics is not going to turn a remark made by Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy into any appreciable fodder to help the deteriorating candidacy for reelection of Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu.
The Landrieu US Senate campaign and the National Democratic Committee have respectively taken issue with two of the highest-profile Republican officials, Congressman Bill Cassidy and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.
Not only is there a debate over how many debates the Louisiana voters will see on TV for the US Senate race, there seems to be somewhat of a debate over whether Congressman Cassidy accepted any debate.
Landrieu survives challenge
Some politicos and political journalists are beginning to believe that the GOP feels they only way they can defeat incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu is to have her removed from the November 4 ballot. That strategy did not work.
Landrieu nears 50%
Usually, a poll conducted on the U.S. Senate race by a conservative entity is not good news for incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, who is seeking a fourth six-year term.
Not so in the case of a recent survey by the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF). It describes itself “as a grassroots organization dedicated to electing strong conservative leaders to the United States Senate. We do not support liberal Republicans and we're not affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its campaign committees.”
Does Barack Obama have a clue? Another American is murdered by ISIS, and the president does not have a plan! Come on, Mr. President. These murderous acts of war against the United States and the victims of these terrible acts deserve strong, swift, and deadly consequences inflicted on the perpetrator, ISIS. How long will the United States wait to respond?
