An ad about to hit the airwaves around the state from the folks at Keep Louisiana Working is taking a poke at Mary Landrieu’s new campaign spot about how hard she fights for the oil and gas industry, and it’s pretty brutal…
KLW isn’t going to unleash hell with this ad, as the media buy is only $180,000 for now. That’s enough to be seen but not drown the public in the message.
But the free media the message of Mary’s fake ad is getting will serve as a multiplier. Here’s the Today Show this morning talking about it…
“That’s pretty embarrassing.” Ouch.
There’s more bad news for Mary. Crossroads is out with a new poll that looks a lot like the other polls on the race, in that Mary can’t get out of the low 40’s and she’s getting beat in a head-to-head with Bill Cassidy.
In the jungle primary, Landrieu is at 40, Cassidy is at 35, Rob Maness is at 4, Paul Hollis 3. There are 18 percent undecided.
And in the head-to-head, Cassidy is up on Landrieu 47-43, with 10 percent undecided.
Landrieu’s also badly underwater on approval rating. She’s at 39, with 51 percent disapproval.
That’s a big mountain to climb, and she’s not going to climb it when those right-wing nuts at NBC News are calling her first ad “pretty embarrassing.”
