Three-Way Battle for U. S. Senate

Two Republican candidates are challenging Sen. Mary Landrieu in the Nov. 4 election, and she appears vulnerable to either.

In a CNN poll published this week, Congressman Bill Cassidy (R) was leading Landrieu 50-47, while Col. Rob Maness (R) and Landrieu were tied 48-48.  The runoff, if necessary, will be Dec. 6. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was in Louisiana last Saturday to campaign for Maness.

Cassidy and Landrieu and their allies have been attacking one another on everything from veterans benefits to Obamacare to illegal immigration.

Millions have already been spent by the candidates and national groups on negative attack ads, and they seem to be having an effect, creating more negatives for both Cassidy and Landrieu. Both Landrieu and Maness say Cassidy is dodging televised debates, but all three will apparently participate in an LPB debate at 7 p.m. Oct. 14 and a WAFB debate Oct. 29.
