Mary Landrieu's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week

Fri, 08/15/2014 - 4:18pm
It’s been a tough week for Sen. Mary Landrieu. If it wasn’t bad enough that the three-term Louisiana Democrat was already considered one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the 2014 midterms – whose seat could determine control of the Senate – this week, Landrieu’s re-election bid was rocked by turbulence over a private jet scandal and the announcement that her leading opponent now has more money to spend in the campaign. GOP challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy’s campaign announced Thursday that he had pulled ahead of Landrieu with $5.6 million cash on hand, according to new FEC filing posted for Landrieu and Cassidy. That’s compared to Landrieu’s $5.5 million.
