I think this is an open primary and she knows the GOP want to run against her... she just does not want to lose in the primary

And the GOP should vote for her- a new democrat has a possibility of winnng. She will lose in a landslide of epic proportions

I’m sure campaigning with Barak Obama, harry Reid,
and Nanzi Pelousy will be a big help to her.

She wants Liberal independents and RINOs to help her win? Really in a conservative state? What she smoking is not medical marijuana!

“What she smoking is not medical marijuana!”

Maybe it’s laced with PCP?

She should easily be in the top 2 for the primary, and with the Republicans splitting the vote, will likely be the front runner coming out of the primary. If she can be held below 50%, she’ll lose in the runoff, unless the Tea Party voters boycott the runoff.

She has had Republican support in the past, including turncoat former Governor Treen.

Keep looking for that support from the GOP and Independents,
Mary.

Did Landrieu win in 2008 because some GOP voters could not stomach voting for a Kennedy (the name of her opponent, who is unrelated to JFK)?

democrats have the media and committed voter fraud in Louisiana

many areas in New Orleans voted at 97% and higher for Landreu. that is election rigging. similar to how democrats voted in philly, cleveland for the obama socialist

Isn’t Mary’s brother the Dim Mayor of New Orleans? I suspect he’ll give his sis all the help he can with the election and voting - no?

We want her to win the primary, though, don’t we?

AND spend a lot of her money doing it...

To: Mr. K

Louisiana has an ‘open’ primary, which doesn’t mean what it does in some other states. All the candidates from all of the parties run in the same primary in November, when most folks are having a general election. If no one gets more than 50 percent, the top two vote getters have a runoff in a ‘general election’ held in December.

The two top vote getters in the primary can be from the same or different parties.

So if you have Mary as the only Dem, and 3 Republicans splitting the vote, the likely outcome is that she’ll have a runoff against one of the Republicans in December. When the Republicans get their act together and just run one candidate, they can sometimes grab the primary win and avoid a runoff with a Dem.
