Rob Maness seeks position as most conservative in Senate race (LA) ^ | 7/14/14

Republican U.S. Senate candidate and tea party favorite Rob Maness pledged Monday to stick to a two-term limit, keep his home in Louisiana and reduce the budget for his congressional office if elected.

Maness is waging a long-shot campaign against the better-funded Republican contender, U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, who is running with support of the GOP establishment. Both will face incumbent Democrat Mary Landrieu in the Nov. 4 primary.

A retired Air Force colonel who has never run for office, Maness is seeking to position himself as the more conservative candidate than Cassidy.

In an appearance Monday before the Press Club of Baton Rouge, Maness blasted career politicians in Washington and opposed the White House's $3.7 billion emergency spending request on illegal immigration.

He said Congress should be starting possible impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, saying he believes the President has overstepped his constitutional authority. But Maness stopped short of calling outright for Obama's impeachment, in contrast to his high-profile endorser Sarah Palin.

I wonder how many ‘safe’ rat Senate seats are going to remain safe after this illegal invasion and Gowdy’s prosecution of Benghazi?
