Registration statistics are in for eligibility to vote on Nov. 4, and early voting has concluded. Do they tell us whether incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu, who has trailed in the last 11 polls heads-up to challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy but who has won three close elections for the office, could do it again?
The race for Louisiana’s senior Senate seat is almost over. After what seems like a lifetime of mudslinging by the candidates, voters will go to the polls and make a decision. Will Senator Mary Landrieu (D) hold on to the seat she has held for eighteen years or will she be unseated by a Baton Rouge congressman, Bill Cassidy (R)? A third candidate, Rob Maness (R), is playing the role of a spoiler to Bill Cassidy. There are also a number of minor candidates who will get few votes.
The Landrieu campaign is attacking a new ad by Congressman Bill Cassidy which MSNBC and “fact checkers” have questioned its veracity.

With two weeks (and counting) left in the Louisiana US Senate race between Mary Landrieu, Rob Maness and Bill Cassidy, some believe the question is whether Mary Landrieu can eek out a victory in the jungle primary or worse for her, win a head-to-head battle against the most-likely opponent, Cassidy.
The Louisiana GOP is taunting Mary Landrieu over the Ebola ban issue.
Today, the LAGOP issued this statement:
One Republican lawmaker has a solution to what Louisiana should do with a budget surplus, should it really exist. His and other legislators' phones have been ringing off the hook due to a crises created by the Jindal administration’s privatization of OGB. Today, Louisiana Representative Kenneth Havard issued this statement today:
There are three story lines today as the US Senator candidates ready for their first televised debate.
Story line 1# Two of the three main candidates will appear while one, Bill Cassidy, has chosen not to participate. As a result, the Mary Landrieu campaign is taking advantage of the empty chair by sharing words of other media.
What has allowed Sen. Mary Landrieu to hang on in the U.S. Senate swimming against a stronger and stronger current is exactly the same thing that most likely will end her elected political career this year.
