MADISONVILLE, LA - The Republican Liberty Caucus (RLC) has unanimously endorsed Col. Rob Maness (ret.) in the Louisiana race for United States Senate.
"We're pleased that Colonel Maness is willing to continue his service to our country with his candidacy for the U.S. Senate," said RLC National Chair Matt Nye. "The Colonel is dedicated to restoring the individual rights of Americans. This is no small task with the unprecedented overreach were seeing by a federal government that infringes on our rights and interferes in our lives in ways that would shock the founders of this country."

Maness and his wife, Cindy, have five children, two of whom are currently serving in the military, and reside in Madisonville, Louisiana.
Sounds like a fine man.
Met him a few times, and he remembered me by first name on the 3rd meeting. Real down-to-earth, and I’m impressed with his resume. Like others, I have compared him to a cross of Ted Cruz / Rand Paul. He’ll make a great senator.
Your great state deserves TEA Party patriot representation is the US Senate and we know that Senators Cruz, Lee and Sessions to name three, sure need help. I like Rand Paul on most issues....
Over here next door to y'all in Mississippi, we're trying our level best to replace Cochran with a TEA Party Patriot, Chris McDaniel, who's also just like Cruz and Lee.
Hopefully, there's a sufficient number of us who have THAD enough.
State Rep. Paul Hollis annonced he has been edorsed by “Gold & Silver PAC.” Maness has fallen into fourth place behind Hollis in a recent poll.
I like all of our conservative candidates but I fear that if it isn’t Cassidy then Mary will be re-elected.
How does she stand a snowball's chance since she's on the record having sex with Obamacare?
Despite what the "polls" that some cite "reveal" Obama's worshipers are not sorry that they voted for him. They are only torqued that because, in their minds, they did not get this or that freebie that they thought was promised them. Come election time, more freebies will be promised and they will be back on the plantation. Happily voting for Democrats again and probably again. And last but not least, in 2012 the Democrats perfected their election stealing process.
Is there any way to know what percentage of those worshipers had their healthcare futures destroyed by Ocare implementation? Can buyer's remorse be gauged?
We must stop Obama now before he runs for a third Term! he can do it by a presidental decree and change the laws. Many, maybe Bill O Rielly too, would cheer for Obama President in 2016. If he runs—he will rig the election and win—Who will run agaist thin Christy? Nope—he will be Obama’s VP. Who—John McCain is my bet or Jeb Bush—or anyone who can’t get elected. the MSM will cheer the historic President for life and his beautiful wife..... Maybe I better switch to decaf.
That was why Obama despite his record, was not worried about losing the 2012 election. The fix was already in. Only the sheep are getting fooled.
It’s a lefty PPP poll; but it’s the only one I’ve seen with a question that actually polls all four candidates on the same ballot:
Q6: If the candidates for Senate next year were Republican Bill Cassidy, Republican Paul Hollis, Democrat Mary Landrieu, and
Republican Rob Maness, who would you vote for?
Bill Cassidy ..................................................... 25%
Paul Hollis....................................................... 5%
Mary Landrieu................................................. 43%
Rob Maness.................................................... 3%
For the good of the country, Hollis and Maness should enthusiastically throw their support to Cassidy.
Vanity is NOT patriotism.
Why ? Cassidy is a weak, wimpy RINO.
You mean the salt monster:
I’m sure that whoever goes to the runoff against Landrieu will get the support of the other two.
OTOH, I don't see how Hollis gets past Cassidy in the primary.
Oh, that's cute.
Rob Maness endorsements:
If I say, that's an impressive list. And it's getting longer every day.
You are right on target with this analysis! Voting Democrat forever until elections are no longer "needed"
I read somewhere that Cassidy is a very recent Republican, maybe just since 2004, not sure of the timing. And he was supposedly a leftist Democrat before he switched. This may not be true though.
You’re the one that does the bios on the LA politicians. I don’t know what Cassidy was prior to 2006. He’s from the Chicago suburbs originally.
(1) The majority of non-Democrats disagree with you.
(2) Suicide has never been a “winning” strategy.
Maness is a very recent Louisianan. I don’t think he moved to the state before the Obama administration.
His voting record and rhetoric affirms my conclusion. As for “suicide”, how has nominating weak RINOs worked out so far in beating Landrieu or winning the Senate majority ?
I personally favor drafting former Congressman Jeff Landry, a dynamic and motivating Conservative Tea Partier. Cassidy is weak, like the two prior nominees to lose to Landrieu.
Maness is a very recent Louisianan. I dont think he moved to the state before
the Obama administration.
Maness retired in 2011 as a 32 year veteran of the US Air Force. He and his
family moved back to LA at that time.
Meet Rob Maness:
He seems like an okay guy, but I have doubt his ties to the state are substantial enough to win a statewide election.
Landry (and anyone else) still has six months left to qualify and file for candidacy. Landry is also a military veteran, BTW.
You may well be correct about living in LA. I don’t know any details.
His bio states:
Rob made the decision as a 17 year old high school senior to enlist in the Air Force
and served in the midst of the Iranian hostage crisis. He worked his way up from the
enlisted ranks to full colonel and retired from active duty in 2011, ending his military
service of more than 32 years. Rob and Candy came back to Louisiana to continue raising
their family where he had spent much of his military career. He currently works
in the utility industry as a director and resides in Madisonville, Louisiana.

I don’t think working for Entergy is a great asset either. It’s a very unpopular company.
“Oh, that’s cute.”
I think it’s great that patriotic Americans such as Rob Maness are willing to enter politics and fight for our constitutional rights jest as he fought for our freedom while serving in the armed forces, but why does he have to make his first ever attempt at public office a run for the U.S. Senate, and one that could derail our chances of beating Landrieu in November at that?
Jeff Landry just announced that he’s running for AG in 2015.
Yeah, I saw that. His talents, however, are badly needed in the Senate.
Keep pushing the establishment types, and we'll end up with establishment types. RINOs will be on the endangered species list.
After what happened to Steve Stockman and Dwayne Stovall in TX, Col. Maness might as well drop his Senate candidacy.
If there was a GOP primary in Louisiana I might have backed Manses or the other minor candidate, Paul Hollis.
But there’s not. There’s a jungle primary. Neither Manses or Hollis is going to overtake Cassidy, especially with both of them running. They each poll in the single digits (and Hollis way well beat Manses for 3rd) and have much less money than Cassidy.
The only thing they are accomplishing is preventing Cassidy from winning in November, forcing a December runoff where ML will have a second chance to win in a lower turnout environment.
Right now there is a 100% chance of Landrieu/Cassidy runoff. 100%. I’d rather see the witch go down in November.
These conservative groups are not good at picking their battles. This is how we wound up with Harry Reid as Majority Leader.
Heck...If you look at the endorsements to Cassidey, they are all establishment RINOs.
In this specific instance, yes I think supporting the “establishment” pick is the smart play, due to Louisiana’s stupid electoral system and the reality of Manses’ level of support. He doesn’t have half a chance of overtaking Cassidy with Hollis splitting the anti-Cassidy Republican vote (if I were you my #1 priority would trying to convince Hollis to drop out).
I realize I’m wasting my time trying to convince you. But believe me unless something major changes all you are accomplishing is giving Mary an extra few weeks to try and lie and cheat her way to victory.
Mary L won the 2002 runoff where she would have lost to a single Republican in November. While I think Cassidy will probably beat her this time, why risk it.
Louisiana conservatives should advocate to a change to closed party primaries and primary runoffs and normal 1 R versus 1 D general elections, this would help elect more conservative Republicans. Witless the recent R versus R special Congressional election where Black democrats helped the more liberal Republican win.
“Witless the recent R versus R special Congressional election where Black democrats helped the more liberal Republican win.”
You were looking for “witness” there; “witless” describes LA conservatives that still believe that a jungle primary is a sound notion. : )
And it also describes those who, when informed of McAllister’s liberal statements and the fact that Black democrats endorsed him, replied with, “But the cast of Duck Dynasty likes him and Satan, I mean Jindal, is for the other guy”.
Good point. We're pretty much screwed with the jungle primary system. It forces us to back the highest polling Republican if we want to have any chance of unseating a sitting RAT in November.
>> These conservative groups are not good at picking their battles. This is how we wound up with Harry Reid as Majority Leader. <<
No kidding. And looking at the races they choose to "target" in 2014 ('Let's take out the staunchly conservative Pat Roberts in KS while giving worthless RINO Lamar Alexander in TN a pass!') they haven't learned from their mistakes in 2010 and 2012.
>> Just to keep it simple <<
I'll keep it simple. "Red" means communism, not conservatism. As long as our side continues to let the media define us, we'll continue to lose elections.
