In a slew of new online and television ads worth $940,000, Americans For Prosperity (AFP) is focusing all of its attention on vulnerable Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA), claiming that her “clout” as Chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee is not what she says it is.
Also, the ads target Landrieu’s failure to act while the Veterans Affairs Department is full of scandal because of exposed waiting lists that have left Veterans across the country dead at VA hospitals. The ad points out that Landrieu had the million-dollar vote when it came to Obamacare, which is essentially government-run healthcare, similar to the government-run care that Veterans have had to deal with.
“When it comes to health care, the unacceptable treatment for our veterans should serve raise alarm bells for the rest of us: government-run care is not the answer,” AFP writes.

And then there is the AFP attack ad which focuses on Landrieu’s so-called “clout” as Chairwoman of the Senate Energy Committee.
“When it comes to energy prices, Senator Landrieu’s clout has yet to slow the Obama administration’s assault on affordable energy,” AFP writes. Louisiana’s energy industry is going to be disproportionately harmed by the EPA’s proposed regulations, killing good-paying jobs and raising energy bills.”
