Tommy Boggs dies
Tommy Boggs, Washington lobbyist and son of the late Hale and Lindy Boggs and sister of Cokie Roberts is dead.
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.
Word to the wise.
If you are in the world of politics, don’t use the word slave, plantation and surely not the N-word.
One would have thought that Republican Congressman Bill Cassidy would have learned from his prior mistake. Apparently not.
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.
Mary Landrieu and her husband might own a two million-plus Washington DC home but her return to it, as a US Senator, next year, is no certainty. One of the controveries surrounding her re-election campaign is whether she lives in Louisiana.
Jeff Crouere of WGSO Radio and Stephen Sabludowsky of Bayoubuzz.com debated this issue during this week's radio-Google Hangout webcast. Here is the transcript and below is the video:
The debate over the US Senate race debate rages—at least, for now, from Camp Landrieu.
Mary Landrieu’s campaign has been focusing upon the lack of commitment from Team Cassidy to engage in debate of the issues.
As anticipated, Bill Cassidy (R) and Mary Landrieu (D) would qualify for the US Senate position for Louisiana. As of this time, Rob Maness, a Tea Party favorite has not qualified but is expected to do so.
