To no one’s surprise, U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) announced his intention to run for re-election. After a distinguished military career and 5 ½ years as a POW in Vietnam, McCain retired from the military and entered politics. McCain was initially elected to the House of Representatives in 1982, followed by his first Senate election in 1986. Since his initial election to the Senate, McCain has won re-election four times.
For John McCain, 34 years in Congress will not be enough, so he wants another six years as U.S. Senator. In fact, he told one reporter that his Senate career was “just getting started.” If elected again, McCain will be 86 at the end of his next term.
More, Louisiana US Senate race analysis and talk--WGSO's Jeff Crouere and Bayoubuzz's Stephen Sabludowsky--continued the debate following this weekend's election in which Republican candidate Bill Cassidy ousted Democrat incumbent Mary Landrieu.
Talk about dirty tricks.
Last week, two Louisiana blogs questioned $50,000 that Congressman and doctor Bill Cassidy received for part-time work he was supposed to perform for LSUHC while he was working full-time as a US Congressman for Louisiana.
Doesn’t Louisiana deserves better than what we are receiving from our political parties and our candidates’ campaigns?
Below are statements from a liberal group praising the US Senate’s vote today to block the Keystone Pipeline and another statement from a Latino group also blasting Senator Mary Landrieu for her efforts to pass the pipeline.
Quite often I am asked whom do I believe will when the U.S. Senate race. At this point in time, while I am not backing any particular candidate, I believe that Congressman Bill Cassidy will either do much better tomorrow than anticipated or will be within a percentage point or so of Senator Landrieu. I would not be surprised if Cassidy were able to pull off an open primary victory while I do not expect the Democratic senator to win heads-up.
So you could watch the decisive game of the 2014 World Series, some of us watched the desperation dripping from Sen. Mary Landrieu as she tried to say anything to capitalize during the second and final statewide televised debate among competitive U.S. Senate candidates in Louisiana, and it’s unlikely any of that changed the dynamics of a contest moving decisively against her.
With now less than two weeks left to the Louisiana US Senate race, one of the real questions churned about is the impact of the Tea Party candidate, Rob Maness .
Pundits continue to argue whether Bill Cassidy, Mary Landrieu or Rob Maness won the recent televised Louisiana US Senate debate.
Did the televised Louisiana US Senate Race, anxiously awaited by thousands, meet the expectations of two of the state's most politically-savvy experts? What were their disappointments, if any?
