Will Mary Landrieu Invite President Obama to LA?
Yesterday, Senator Harry Reid embraced “President Barack Obama's standing in an exclusive interview with CNN...stating that he encourages vulnerable Senate Democrats running for re-election in 2014 to invite the President to campaign with them even in states where he is unpopular.”
Reid told CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash, “Barack Obama is personally a very popular guy. And people love this man. They love his family.”
"So you would encourage some of your most vulnerable Senate Democratic candidates to invite President Obama to appear with them," Bash asked.
"Yes, and they will," Reid said.
“Will Mary Landrieu listen to Harry Reid and invite President Obama to campaign with her in Louisiana,” LAGOP Spokesman Ryan Cross asked.
Bruce Alpert, reporter for the Times-Picayune and NOLA.com, said, "There was no immediate comment from Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., who is in a tough fight for re-election against several Republicans, led by Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-Baton Rouge."
“With her poll numbers hemorrhaging, Mary Landrieu won’t give Louisiana residents a straight answer on whether she’ll campaign with President Obama even though she votes with his liberal agenda 97 percent of the time and cast the deciding vote for Obamacare,” LAGOP spokesman Ryan Cross said. “Why wouldn’t Senator Landrieu take Harry Reid’s advice and invite President Obama to campaign with her in Louisiana?”
