(Mary) Landrieu on Jindal: Hypocrite, Shameful, Self Promoter


Mary Landrieu may have moved from the Senate to K Street, but she still has some thoughts on politics both nationally and locally. Bobby Jindal aims to sit at the intersection of those realms, and former Senator was not shy about her opinion of da Gov’ in a recent interview. Simply put, Landrieu is not impressed or as she phrased it, “Bobby Jindal is a hypocrite. He’s shameful and he’s a self promoter. And, everyone in Louisiana knows this.”


Mailbag: Seniority in the Senate


The Senate election is just days away. Readers, Warren and Mary Perrin write to NOLA Defender to weigh in on the race. In their opinion, the decision comes to down to empowering Louisiana in the chamber.


Winner Visions: Landrieu Campaign Enlists Stevie Wonder


Most of this weeks LaSen coverage if focused on the Beltway and an endgame for the Kestone XL pipeline. However, in New orleans, Landrieu staffers are trying to take the incumbent’s battle to higher ground. Stevie Wonder announced that he’s with Mary and will be headlining a fundraiser.


Palin Swaps Sides and Teas Up for Cassidy


Local and National conservatives spent the better part of the last year campaigning against Representative Bill Cassidy. However, politics is the profession that popularized the term “flip-flop,” and changes are not uncommon.

Landrieu Pushes for Immediate Up or Down Vote on Keystone XL


Senator Mary Landrieu’s tenure as Chair of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee is limited with control of the body, and potentially her own seat, going to the Republicans.

Wisdom of Elders: Landrieu Picks Up Senior Endorsement


By Ashley Larsen

The gloves are coming off in the senate race. Mary Landrieu received the endorsement of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security & Medicare (NCPSSM) yesterday, October 21st. NCPSSM is one the largest advocacy groups to protect the federal benefits for seniors in the country. Max Richtman, the President and CEO of the coalition, presented Landrieu with a pair of boxing gloves at the event in New Orleans to help prepare her to “fight” for Social Security and Medicare.


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. In addition to moving some staffers to the campaign side, Landrieu has enlisted Ryan Berni, the “golden boy of SoLA politics”, as her new campaign manager.


FEMA Grants City $9 Mil for Road Repair


Nine years after Katrina, many of the City's roads still are damaged, but some help is on the way. A 9 million dollar award has been granted to the city of New Orleans for road repairs in the Desire and Gentilly Terrace corridors. Streets damaged during Hurricane Katrina will receive long overdue treatment, funded by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Senator Mary Landrieu, Chair of Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee U.S. Representative Cedric Richmond and Mayor Mitch Landrieu announced the funds today (10.07).


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
