Mary Landreiu starting up her re-election BS?



Have seen a few commercials over the last few days? I guess she is a bit worried, but I'm a little puzzled, why is the API paying for these commercials? I understand she has been pro-oil on the surface, but wouldn't any Republican Senator we send to Washington?

She's a known quantity, and if the Senate doesn't flip, it's good to have someone in the majority party on your side. Perhaps they don't see anyone who's a sure bet to beat her, and with that in mind, don't want to cross her when she's been friendly enough to them.

Mary's become one of the top Blue Dogs in the senate. What Rep in LA can challenge her?

Didn't she vote for Obama care?

She's a higher ranking Dem in the majority. Why wouldn't they support her?

Right now, she's Louisiana's most powerful asset in Washington, and she's always been pro oil.

She shouldn't be worried. The Louisiana GOP could screw up a two-car parade.

Mother fricking this!

I suspect they'll try to get the loser of Dist 3 to run against her, if that's Boustany.

I've heard a rumor that it may be Jim Letten....not sure how I feel about this.

It's an industry for her, providing dumbasses with excuses to vote for her in spite of her cynically ineffective "conservative" positions, and her reliably liberal votes whenever needed to carry the day for democrats.

Or a 1-car. However, having said that, she only beat Woody Jenkins by less than 6,000, mainly dead people in New Orleans to take the seat initially - Woody Jenkins, think about that.

She's hit 52% the past 2 cycles, once outright. I felt that she would have had a tough time if she had to run in 2010, but she didn't.

Heck, I'm not sure Mary has ruled out running for President or Vice President.

Dude - I line up to vote against her, early and often. She has a very liberal (socially) voting record and positions. However, she has moderate credentials (she's generally good on oil and gas, as well as military issues) and is from the south - since the Dems are only going to run far-left people from the North - she could definitely balance out a ticket in 2016 - she will only be 61.

She is also a good fund raiser.

A lot of oil taxes will be affected in the current negotiations. They're giving her cover right now to suck up.

Time for Miss Piggy to get voted out, but probably won't happen.

based upon the Fact all statewide state officials are Republican, the majority in the House and Senate. all but one Congressional seat (tha tone gerrymandered for a black), one senate seat, and Obama just got rolled in the state?


Yeah she is safe, not a chance she could have another close election.

No one has mentioned her acting like a prostitute for her vote on health care? Don't ever forget. I'd vote for Smurfette over her.
