Former Mayor of New Orleans Moon Landrieu made a cameo in his daughter’s, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), latest senate campaign ad. In the ad, Landrieu calls his vulnerable Democrat Senator daughter a “hard-head” and portrays her as a fighter for Louisiana energy and somewhat of an opponent to the Obama administration’s agenda.
Here’s the ad below:
Though Landrieu is portrayed as a bi-partisan Senate Democrat who goes against the grain, most recently and for most of her political career she’s voted party-line with Democrats and the Obama administration.
Just a week ago, Landrieu blamed Senate Republicans for the failure of the Keystone XL Pipeline, saying that they don’t truly want to build the pipeline, rather just debate it.
But, just today, Senate Democrats were ultimately to blame for the energy project not moving forward, as Landrieu, the Chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, was not able to convince enough of her Democrat counterparts to vote for the pipeline.
