In a statement Sunday, Seabaugh said Cassidy, in both his tenure in the Louisiana State Senate and the House of Representatives, has been "if not quite a staunch hard-line conservative, at least a solid Republican vote."
"In recent weeks, Bill Cassidy has proven something to me and fellow conservatives," Seabaugh said.
With Congress and the White House still negotiating over whether to keep government open, the public relations campaigns continue to attract the eyes and minds of the Louisiana voters.
Looks like Riser and Holloway
The contentious and controversial race in the 5th Congressional District, where 14 candidates are on the ballot, will likely come down to a runoff between state Sen. Neil Riser, R-Columbia, and former U.S. Rep. and current Public Service Commissioner Clyde Holloway, R-Forest Hill.
The race for U.S. Senate is roughly one year from now, but the campaign gets more interesting as it gets closer.
For one, most thought the competition would be against current republican Congressman Bill Cassidy and Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu. Then, walked in tea-party favorite Col. Rob Maness who is running to the right of Cassidy. According to Maness, Cassidy is not conservative enough for Louisiana and Landrieu must be beaten.
Lately, another republican name has surfaced in being a contender--State Rep. Alan Seabaugh.
Some now wonder should Seabaugh step into the ring, whom would it help?
For one, perhaps, it is Mary Landrieu. Would it also mean that other republicans might also enter the field?
Things are not awesome for Doc Cassidy. First, he’s pillared on the Daily Show as a disingenuous panderer. Now, it looks like his mushy-mouth moderation isn’t working for for Louisiana Republicans in this hyper-partisan world. Reports have surfaced this week that theLAGOP is no longer discouraging other GOPers from entering the LASEN race to try to unseat Senator Mary Landrieu.
