Earlier this morning, Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), who is in a vulnerable Senate race, said ousting Senators liker herself “would not be a good thing.”
Landrieu cited her longtime career as a Louisiana politician, her work as an Energy and Natural Resources Committee Chairwoman and her so-called bipartisan votes in the Senate.
Here’s a part of Landrieu’s segment from MSNBC’s Morning Joe:
Landrieu said that getting rid of her and a few other Senators who brand themselves as across-the-isle Democrats would not be good for the country.
Landrieu has long attempted to appear as a bipartisan Democrat by distancing herself from the Obama administration on major issues such as Obamacare.
The lone Louisiana Democrat made the remarks after the Liberty Foundation of America released a poll that found that Landrieu was actually trailing behind Repbulican challenger Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) by 44 percent to 42 percent.
Also, just as the Hayride reported, a nationwide poll conducted by USA TODAY/Pew Research Center found that voters are leaning more towards Republicans and not Democrats for the 2014 and 2016 elections. The poll found that by 2-1, 65 percent to 30 percent, Americans said they would like to see the direction of the country turn around.
