cain-cassidyPOLITICO: LANDRIEU’S EFFECTIVENESS

The Mary Landrieu campaign is circulating an article by Politico that highlights the effectiveness of her Energy Committee and her Homeland Security committee and her role as a legislator.  According to a Politico infographic, she is one of the most effective Senators in terms of co-sponsoring successful legislation during the “do nothing” Congress.

Louisiana mid-term election experience: Voter ID, too many amendments

capitol Election Day for the congressional and local elections is right around the corner.  In fact, a Louisiana voter can absentee vote right now.  The Secretary of State’s office predicts some 45 to 50 percent of registered voters will actually show up and vote.
