GOP Rep. Bill Cassidy, who is challenging Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in one of this year’s most competitive Senate races, revealed late Thursday that his 17-year-old daughter became pregnant out of wedlock and is due later this summer.

Cassidy’s campaign revealed the news with a one-paragraph statement to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, published late Thursday afternoon as the July Fourth holiday weekend began.

“Earlier this year, Laura and I learned we will become grandparents this summer,” Cassidy, 56, said in the statement. “Our children have been the greatest blessing of our lives and we welcome our grandchild as a joyous addition to our family. Our daughter now faces a more challenging future than her peers. She has our unconditional love and support.”

His daughter is a rising senior at a high school in Baton Rouge.

Stuff happens. It’s how you deal with it that matters.

Yes, but the media holds Republicans to 1950s standards, and liberals to the standards described in Dante’s Inferno.

He will no doubt be Palin’d over this. Hope they get through it OK, realizing that the Left is no doubt upset over missing a chance to talk a kid into an abortion.

The Palin family comes to mind, and they handled it with wisdom and family strength. And low and behold, they survived. Teenage pregnancy’s happen, have always happened will always happen ... it is how the families handle it that counts.

If ‘he’ didn’t get her pregnant, than what’s the issue?

Nice. This is the “make the other guy live up to his principles” Alinsky tactic.

Mary will be relying on street cash - how she won in the first place = to try to steal this one. Everyone is sick of her. She’s running that she ‘stood up to Obama’ when, in fact, she’s been a rubber stamp voter.

Who cares?

Not the RATs, they won't be voting for him, not the RATagandists, they won't be voting for him...

The precious independents, who don't know what they believe in...they could go either way.

Now the Republican voters and Christian conservatives....

Cover your eyes bible thumpers!

I take the term "Bible thumper" as a badge of honor. It's often used by the commies (not implying you, of course) as a pejorative along with these other terms that I likewise consider complimentary anymore:

It means she has finished her junior year but has not yet begun the senior year. It’s a common term.
