Saturday, a group of pro-life women, including Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr., and Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the Susan B. Anthony List, gathered to call out Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., for being out of touch with her constituents.
“Not only has Sen. Landrieu voted for taxpayer funding of abortion and against conscience rights, she refuses to support a common sense, compassionate limit on abortion after five months when the child can feel excruciating pain, Sen. Landrieu has failed to stand up for pro-life Louisiana values and must be defeated.”As for the mid-term election: A judge on Friday threw out a lawsuit challenging Landrieu’s residency in the state.
Landrieu is shooting for her fourth term, and is set to become chairman of the Senate Energy Committee (a cheap attempt by Harry Reid to bolster her importance and influence for the eyes of voters in the state) but constituents don’t seem to be impressed: The latest Rasmussen poll shows Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La.has taken a three-point lead in the race, 44 percent to 41 percent.
But that still falls within the margin of error and doesn't cover the built-in voter fraud so wide spread in democrat strong-holds of the southern parishes. Neither candidate seems poised to get to 50 percent, which is necessary to avoid a December runoff in Louisiana’s open primary system.
All said, with the Tea-Party candidate polling at 8-9% and refusing to drop out and swing his support to Cassidy, Landrieu is sure to make the runoff, and in all probability, again squeeze out a win.
