Much of the drama evaporated from the Louisiana U.S. Senate race after Republicans gained control of the Senate in elections held on November 4.

I’m with Mary!

    I am taking the unusual step – the first time in Fax-Net’s 16-year history, of endorsing a candidate for political office in this publication.
    In doing so, I realize many Fax-Net subscribers will likely disagree.  That’s okay.  It is how democracy works.  Some may not renew their subscription. That’s fine, too.  I feel that strongly about this election, and I respect your views as I hope you do mine.

Senate race: neck-and-neck
    A new poll on the Louisiana U.S. Senate race by Public Policy Polling (PPP) reveals a neck-and-neck  race between incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu and Republican challenger U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy.

    Centenary College will be the site for a U.S. Senate debate featuring the three major candidates – incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, and Republican retired Air Force Colonel Rob Maness.

    Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, who is running for the U.S. Senate, better keep an eye on his fellow Republican Rob Maness, the retired Air Force colonel who is the Tea Party favorite.

New-Orleans-Plantations Things are not going well for Republican U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy these days in his race against incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, who is seeking a fourth six-year term.

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.

    Usually, a poll conducted on the U.S. Senate race by a conservative entity is not good news for incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, who is seeking a fourth six-year term.
    Not so in the case of a recent survey by the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF). It describes itself “as a grassroots organization dedicated to electing strong conservative leaders to the United States Senate. We do not support liberal Republicans and we're not affiliated with the Republican Party or any of its campaign committees.”
