    --snip-- “Norm is a good, old-fashioned, far-left guy,” McConnell said. “I like him. He’s fine. He’s been wrong for as long as I can remember. And it’s great to see you here. I’ve been wanting to spar with you for years.”

If no U.S. Senate candidate gains 50 percent plus one vote in Tuesday's general election, the top two vote-getters will compete in a Dec. 4 runoff. Because all the other 33 Senate elections will be decided next week, the Louisiana race...
