Lousiana Senate Seatwarmer Mary Landrieu was already looking kinda vulnerable in 2014 because of her support for Obamacare. Now, a controversy has blown up in her backyard that squarely divides the conservative, religious voters she needs to win from the deep-pocketed liberals she needs to win.
RedState conjectures that this may tip the balance in favor of her challenger (Republican Bill Cassidy).
Over 90% of evangelicals support Phil Robertson, and agree with his views, as do most Republicans and conservatives. The Robertsons are a LOUISIANA-based family and business, and wildly popular in the state.
Do not expect anyone in the media to ask Ms. Landrieu to weigh in on the controversy; only Republican candidates are ever asked their opinions on difficult and divisive issues. e.g. Abortion-Rape.
One has to wonder if anyone will remember this thing ten months from now; much as everyone outside the Beltway has forgotten the partial Government shutdown.
Y’know, if the GOP had an actual strategy, they wouldn’t have to rely on dumb luck and Democrat screw-ups to win elections.
