    At a far lower decibel range than most of Super Tuesday's primary battles, a former New Orleans congressman made an announcement few would find surprising. Joseph Cao is running for the U.S. Senate. Cao's official entrance into the race dovetails neatly with the sentiments of a private holiday email he sent to family and friends in December. "Sen. (David) Vitter will not be running for re-election, so this is a great opportunity to have a Vietnamese-American/Asian-American voice in the U.S. Senate," Cao wrote.

    The (New Orleans) Times Picayune ^ | November 10, 2014 | Cole Avery
    Republicans of every stripe staged a united front to help Rep. Bill Cassidy in his quest to unseat Sen. Mary Landrieu, the last statewide elected Democrat, during a rally Monday at Huey's Bar in downtown Baton Rouge. The rally was headlined by Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Rob Maness, a sign the far-right is ready to embrace Cassidy. Paul echoed the Republican theme of the 2014 midterms by denouncing President Barack Obama's positions and the Democrats that support them. He spoke at length about Obama and called Landrieu a rubber stamp for his policies. Perhaps more important for Cassidy than...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 11-10-14 | Byron York
    For months, Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu's re-election campaign was based on one simple pitch: Elect me to a fourth term, and I'll chair the Senate Energy Committee, and that means money, money, money for Louisiana. Landrieu's case for re-election was all about clout. That was then. Now, as Landrieu heads to a Dec. 6 runoff with Republican challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy, Democrats have already lost control of the Senate — a reality that won't be affected by the outcome of the runoff. So while Landrieu still has a chance to win, one thing is absolutely certain: She will not...
  • Col. Rob Maness (ret.) for US Senate announcement on Facebook

    Candy and I enjoyed a double date with Bill and Laura Cassidy tonight at Ye Olde College Inn in New Orleans. Thanks to the Blancher family for hosting us and to Jimmy and the staff for a great New Orleans meal! Congressman Cassidy and I had a positive discussion concerning our shared love for our country and for Louisiana. We also spoke about important points of public policy including the ongoing situation in Bayou Corne, the REDEEM Act, and Sen. Lee's Conservative Reform Agenda... I even encouraged Bill to take a look at our Contract with Louisiana and to hop...

    Retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness is joining forces with Rep. Bill Cassidy in an effort to seal a win for Republicans over Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu. Maness will formally endorse Cassidy during a star-studded Republican rally in Baton Rouge on Monday that will feature presumed presidential candidates Rand Paul, R-Ky., and Gov. Bobby Jindal. U.S. Sen. David Vitter, state Sen. Elbert Guillory, state Rep. Paul Hollis, 6th Congressional District candidate Garret Graves, former U.S. Rep. Jeff Landry, and LAGOP chairman Roger Villere will also attend the "Unity Rally." Maness finished third behind Landrieu and Cassidy in Tuesday's primary. He...

    Politics in Louisiana is a uniquely business. Don’t believe me? Then take a look at what’s about to go down there on Tuesday. You might not think a noontime political rally with two or three-dozen listeners in Lafayette, Louisiana -- a town 135 miles west of New Orleans -- is a logical place to look for one of the potentially crucial elements of the mid-term elections. And in just about any other state, you’d be right. But this is Louisiana. And Louisiana is....different. It’s not just its accents, its terrain, its laws (shaped by the Napoleonic Code, not British common...

    "It's obvious that we're seeing a concerted and coordinated effort to smear Rob Maness," said Michael Byrne, Maness' campaign manager. "Roger Villere and the LAGOP are doing the bidding of the D.C. Republican-establishment and using Chicago-style tactics to coerce young, enthusiastic, conservatives to say things that they have privately admitted they don't really believe." The Maness campaign said Ward was pressured into switching from Maness to Cassidy so the Republican Party would support his candidacy for school board. Ward sent a Facebook message to Maness supporter Shawn Cronan on Oct. 10 that read: "Shawn, as you know I am running...

    Senate candidate Rob Maness' campaign is accusing Louisiana Republican Party chairman Roger Villere of coercing up-and-coming members of the party by threatening to withhold support if they didn't switch and back the party's preferred candidate, Rep. Bill Cassidy. They point to emails and Facebook messages from a former Maness campaign manager and a candidate in North Louisiana to support their case. "It's obvious that we're seeing a concerted and coordinated effort to smear Rob Maness," said Michael Byrne, Maness' campaign manager. "Roger Villere and the LAGOP are doing the bidding of the D.C.

Check out these 5 TV Ads for Rob; the Conservative candidate in the LA Senate race. One (Title: “The Other Guy”) is hokie. One (Title: Truck) is ok, but, three of them are awesome (Titles: “Resilient”, “Gator”, “Never Forget”). That’s the URL below: https://2014.senateconservatives.com/maness/step1

    SHREVEPORT, Louisiana — Tea Party-backed retired Air Force Col. Rob Maness outperformed the political establishment’s expectations during the U.S. Senate debate here Tuesday evening, where he faced off against incumbent Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and GOP establishment-backed candidate Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA). “Answers from” Maness were “advanced candidacy in my book,” Shreveport Times executive editor and general manager Alan English Tweeted post debate. “Good job.” English added that Landrieu was “polished as expected” and Cassidy “trailed debate scorecard.” English was one of the four local journalists who moderated the debate. Mary Matalin, a presidential campaign director for President George...

    It’s dark out. A grungy-looking band of (presumably Hispanic) immigrants enters through a hole in a chain-link fence, next to a lit-up “Enter Here” sign. The U.S. Border Patrol is there, but can only look on in frustration. The immigrants, to their profound surprise and delight, are greeted with balloons, fireworks, a marching band, a bilingual welcome banner, and a giant check made out to “All Illegal Aliens” for “A Lot of Taxpayer Money.” They are driven away in limousine, giant check in tow, as they high-five and fist-pump out the windows. “Charlie Melancon — thanks to him, we might...

First, secure the border, secure the border, secure the border [and] take care of visa overstays... We are on the record, you have to...

    Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin is back in the spotlight for the Republican party as she attempts to help rescue struggling campaigns. This follows a less than stellar appearance by the Palin clan at a party in Alaska a few weeks ago. On Thursday, Palin was in Kansas to throw her support behind U.S. Senator Pat Roberts. The former Alaskan Governor stood next to the 78-year-old Republican Senator, flipping pancakes at a public appearance in front of 250 people at the Independence Historical Museum and Art Center. The appearance was intent on helping bolster the Republican Senator’s numbers and supporters...

    Probably not fatal to the GOP’s hopes of retaking this seat, but not helpful either. Per Becket Adams, since when do tea partiers describe rich people as “the one percent”? [Palin] is slated to appear at a Saturday event organized around [Rob] Maness’s “#OneofUs” campaign, a campaign intended to frame the candidate as an average Louisianan in contrast to the GOP front-runner in the race, Rep. Bill Cassidy, and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.), both of whom Maness has characterized as out-of-touch Washington elites. “If you could sum up this campaign, it’s two of them vs. one of us,” a source...

    Look at how the NRSC races have gone. We may lose Kansas because the NRSC did not vet their candidate there. We may very well lose North Carolina too. But the NRSC told us their candidate there was the best candidate. Now, in Louisiana, the NRSC is telling us not to support Rob Maness for the Senate. “Trust us,” they tell us. Look at their track record. I am supporting Rob Maness and you should too. Both Cassidy and Landrieu are creatures of Washington, D.C. Hell, Landrieu is routinely cited as a Washington, D.C. resident. Cassidy too is a creature...
