Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu lost to The Tea Party Republican congressman Bill Cassidy in the Louisiana Senate runoff election on Saturday, completing the GOP’s dominance of the Deep South in the upper chamber. The Associated Press called the race not long after polls closed. The three-term incumbent, who chairs the influential Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, worked hard in the last days of the campaign to bring African American voters to the polls. She also tried, but failed, to convince enough fellow Democrats in voting to approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Cassidy’s election is noteworthy in one respect — the state of Louisiana has not been represented by two Republican senators concurrently since 1876. His victory brings the total number of Republicans in the Senate up to 54.

Louisiana: Set to Join Majority of States Allowing Use of Suppressors While Hunting Game Today, the Louisiana Senate unanimously passed House Bill 186, sponsored by state Representative Cameron Henry (R-Metairie). NRA-supported HB 186 will allow for the use of lawfully-owned suppressors while hunting game animals. In 2011, the state legislature legalized the use of these devices for hunting non-game nuisance quadrupeds. Now Louisiana is poised to join the majority of other states which allow suppressors to be used for taking game. Suppressors help prevent hearing loss, mitigate noise complaints and can increase accuracy for both experienced and novice hunters. Having passed in the state House of Representatives by an 82 to 15 vote on April 4, HB 186 now goes to Governor Bobby Jindal (R) for his expected signature. Additionally, the Louisiana House of Representatives passed Senate Bill 212 today by an 85 to 3 vote. Sponsored by state Senator Rick Ward (R-Port Allen), SB 212 was amended in the House t ...
Statement from Former Governor Sarah Palin Gov. Sarah Palin"Many of us have encouraged the election of more conservative warriors to join the fight in the United States Senate this election cycle. In the Louisiana Senate race we have the opportunity to send a true conservative and a real warrior to join that fight. So, today I am lending my support to retired Col. Rob Maness for U.S. Senate. "Col. Maness fought for 32 years in uniform upholding his pledge to support and defend our Constitution, and he is ready now to continue that service in the U.S. Senate. A decorated combat veteran, Rob fought to protect our freedoms and liberties and was awarded the Air Medal and Bronze Star for meritorious service in a combat zone. On that fateful day in September 2001, Rob was stationed in the Pentagon when the terrorists attacked. Rob rushed from his office to the crash site and quickly jumped on one of the first teams entering the building in an attempt to save their colleagues. "Rob is a true conservative –-- o ...
Louisiana Senate contest embodies Democrats' task: win black voters
I’d assumed southern Senate Democrats were a vanishing species, particularly vulnerable this November. Not true. According to a new round of polls conducted by The New York Times and Kaiser Family Foundation: (1) Senator Mark Pryor (D-AR) is leading Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) 46 percent to 36 percent; (2) North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) has a tiny lead over House Speaker Thom Tillis (R-NC), 42 percent to 40 percent; (3) Kentucky Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is barely leading Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes (D), 44 percent to 43 percent; and (4) Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has a commanding lead over Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and the rest of the field in the Louisiana Senate race. But these are opinion polls. The actual results will depend on turnout. And you can bet Republicans will be doing everything in their power to make it difficult for likely Democrats (i.e. African-Americans, Latinos, women, young people, and the poor) to vote this November. The good news is that, a ...

Uh oh, This time Rasmussen is NOT so reputable: Stop the Presses! By Lou Gehrig Burnett Cassidy leads Landrieu, but... Republicans are touting a recent poll which shows challenger U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy with a slight lead over incumbent Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu for this fall’s race, 44-40%. The poll, conducted between January 28-29, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5%, which means the race could be a dead heat. But the telephone survey by conservative-leaning Rasmussen Reports has some veteran politicos scratching their heads. The reason is that retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness, who has picked up every endorsement from conservative and Tea Party groups, was excluded from the poll, while state Rep. Paul Hollis, who recently entered the race, was included. It begs the question of just how knowledgeable Rasmussen is about the Louisiana Senate race. A November poll by Southern Media and Opinion Research out of Baton Rouge had Maness with 10% of the vote. Landrieu led the field with 41% an ...

For Immediate Release Contact: Julie Schwam Harris julieschwamh650-2746 Friday, May 17, 2013 Bipartisan Vote keeps Equal Pay for Women Effort Alive “Monday is the Big Day" On Monday, May 20, the Louisiana Senate will have a chance to keep alive the effort to bring fairer pay practices to Louisiana. SB 153 (Murray) won a 19 – 18 bipartisan vote in a cliff hanger on Wednesday – an exciting win in itself but not enough to move to the next step. A bill needs 20 votes to pass out of the Senate and to the House. On Monday the bill will be up for reconsideration – and will give more Senators a chance to demonstrate their support for fairness and equality. Julie Schwam Harris, IWO’s volunteer point person on legislative advocacy this year said, “We applaud those legislators from all over the state and from both sides of the aisle who recognize the fairness and financial rationality of the Equal Pay for Women Act. How can discrimination even be recognized if contrary to norm ...

Louisiana Senate calls for NFL to reconsider bounty sanctions Posted by Mike Florio on April 4, 2012, 9:47 PM EDT With appeal hearings to be held on Thursday regarding the penalties imposed so far against the Saints, coach Sean Payton, G.M. Mickey Loomis, and assistant head coach/linebackers coach Joe Vitt, the Louisiana Senate has chimed in on the situation.According to Ed Anderson of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the Committee on Senate and Governmental Affairs passed a resolution urging the NFL to reconsider the punishment.The resolution cites “widespread public opinion throughout the state of Louisiana and beyond that the penalties imposed upon the Saints are too harsh and should be reconsidered.” Though the public opinion beyond Louisiana isn’t necessarily widespread, the penalties are indeed harsh.Regardless of whether the league will change the discipline imposed, it necessarily will reconsider it. The procedure that the NFL has instituted for matters of this nature gives Commissioner Rog ...
Politico has a story on the Louisiana Senate race. According to Politico, the race in the Bayou State is "turning ugly." That's not quite right. For over a year David Vitter has been running attack ads on Charlie Melacon trying to frame in the minds of Louisiana voters as a "liberul-lovin' Obama-endorsin' Congressman." It's all the more peculiar since the race isn't even officially set. The Louisiana primary isn't until August 28th and both Vitter and Melacon still need to win that contest first. The family values creationist David Vitter has attracted 16 primary challengers, including a former Louisiana Supreme Court Justice, Chet D. Traylor. Melancon faces token opposition from two little known opponents in the Democratic primary. The first Vitter attack ad ran last summer. The second spot began running on Thursday. It accuses Melacon of driving a sport utility vehicle at taxpayer expense though in reality the SUV is leased by the Congressional office for travel within the District. The 30 spot is also ...
