Landrieu Senate race now 'Pure Toss Up'


LINK


quote:

Veteran political analyst Stuart Rothenberg is re-evaluating some Senate races in light of the controversy over the IRS targeting of some Tea Party groups for extra scrutiny. One of those races is Louisiana's 2014 contest. Rothenberg just changed the contest from "Tilt Democrat," to "Pure Toss Up." He cites a better climate for Republicans. "For the past few years, the public's focus has been on Republicans' opposition to the president's agenda, their desire to shrink (even cripple) government and their conservatism," Rothenberg wrote. "But the IRS scandal, along with controversies involving the attack in Benghazi and the Justice Department's collecting of journalists' telephone records, has change the political narrative."


So much money will be spent in this race, it'll be crazy

If the republicans take the senate, and thats not too far fetched, the president will be completely put into lame duck status, as he will be too busy putting out scandal fires. No wait ...

The media are going to cover his backside like never before if this should happen.

before all this broke I would have agreed 100%, but with the seizing the phone records and everything else that they've done to the media, I don't think it's a certainty anymore

At least Ole Stuart isn't letting his bias show.

It will all depend on black voter turn-out, IMO.

I'd pull a lever for Elmo or Big Bird if they were on the ticket opposite of LA's first slut.

Will be low. No Obama on the ticket right above Mary's name.

Lots of big donor type Republicans, and Republican Sheriff and Parish President in St. Tammany, endorsed and aided Landrieu's re-election last time.

Don't underestimate the effect of those who you think would normally prefer not having a Democrat Senator who votes for Obamacare, but instead they end up valuing more having an incumbent who can help bring home some pork they can financially or politically benefit from.

Agreed, but now I think in Cassidy (Unless someone else jumps in) you have a candidate that while he may not have been inside DC for as long as Mary, does have the connections and enough clout to offset that somewhat

Exactly, and why I think the Republicans have a great chance at taking this seat. But we need to all do our part to run her arse out of office. Give money to her opponent, and if you can't do that volunteer your time. It's extremely important that we make sure that we kick her arse out NOW! We need to usher this bitch out for the sake of our state.

Well Mary is a gun grabber and Louisianians don't like people grabbing their guns.

Those guys are more 'finger in the wind' types than anything. If it looks like the political tide is starting to turn on Mary, I would be surprised if they continue to back her in that manner.

Cassidy will destroy Landiue on the issues. She went against the majority of LA voters on Obamacare and now seems to be quiet on IRS scandal. If nothing unforeseen comes out about Cassidy he will will by 4-5. I think Landriue knows it to. She will be a high paid lobbyist the day after she loses.

How many folks do you reckon Landrieu has working around the clock on that right now?
