Landrieu Shuffle: Mary Brings in Mitch's Man
Tonight, Senator Mary Landrieu(D) is finally getting a televised debate. However, before the cameras start rolling, the incumbent is shaking up her campaign.

Where's Bill? Landrieu Blasts Cassidy for Debate Dodging
By Ashley Larsen
Poor weather did not prevent Senator Mary Landrieu(D) from making it to the site of tonight’s cancelled debate. The incumbent held a press conference this morning in the rain outside Dillard University to attack Representative Bill Cassidy(R) for not committing to debates. Both Landrieu and Col. Rob Maness(R), the tea-party favorite, have been criticizing Bill Cassidy (R) for his lack of appearances at several debates. Cassidy has committed to an October 14th debate in Shreveport and an October 29th debate in Baton Rouge, but has yet to firmly commit to others. With preliminary voting starting in just 18 days, there is not much time left.
LASEN Candidates (sans Cassidy) to Debate Tonight

Something About Mary
The senior Senator from Louisiana is in the news a lot these days. Nationally, both parties have pegged the Boot as a critical state for the Republicans to wrest control of the Senate or the Democrats to cling onto said control. So, Mary Landrieu’s every move seems to be under the microscope. In the last few days, she has received some serious attention stemming from endorsements, and some lighter limelight from a keg stand.
Judge Dismisses Landrieu Residency Case
Louisiana's Senators both live in Louisiana after all. Today, a judge rejected the claim that Mary Landrieu actually lives in Washington D.C. making her ineligible to represent the state in Senate.
GOP Targets Landrieu Over Residence
Following a WaPo story about her residence, Senator Mary Landrieu is fending off attacks from the right. Landrieu claims her parents' Broadmoor home on South Prieur Street as her residence in filings for ballot qualification. However, her critics are quick to point out that she lives in a "stately, $2.5 million manse" while in D.C. Republicans are crying foul.
LASEN: Debate Dates Lined Up
As it winds toward Election Day, the Louisiana Senate race may be moving from 30-second attack ads to face-to-face combat. Mary Landrieu's campaign announced Tuesday that the New Orleans-based incumbent has agreed to participate in four debates. Two of the televised showdowns will be in New Orleans.
#LASEN Update: Sheriffs Pick Sides, Border Battle Brewing
Congress loosened up their Beltway and went home for summer recess this week. But that doesn't mean the Sens and Reps are off, it just means they can focus more on their fall re-election campaigns. In Louisiana's Senate race, the state's sheriffs picked sides, and a border battle is brewing between the top two candidates.
Nunn Ya Business: Landrieu, Cassidy Jockey Over Outside Forces
With attack ads beginning to choke off every commercial break, Louisiana's U.S. Senate race is heading from the backstretch into the final turn Polls continue to show U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-New Orleans) and U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-Baton Rouge) in a tight race, meaning the campaigns are also seeking help from outside forces to get an edge. This week, a leak showed how national Democrats viewed the race, and a New York Times columnist suggested Landrieu could pick up an unlikely endorsement.
