Sarah Palin Still Going GaGa Over Rob Maness

If one thing is for sure about Col. Rob Maness’ campaign against Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), it is that former Gov. Sarah Palin is the long-shot candidate’s biggest fan.

Palin, in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, said support for Maness is picking up in Louisiana while somewhat attacking Landrieu and Cassidy for running attack against one another.

“Those folks in Washington should visit Louisiana like I have recently,” Palin told Breitbart News exclusively when asked what to make of the GOP establishment efforts to push Maness out of the race. “The momentum, enthusiasm, and dedication for Rob Maness is real, and I’ve seen it – along with a few live gators! The other candidates have spent millions on the air bashing each other with uninspiring ads.”

“Rob’s hard work and his one creative gator-wrestling ad got his message out. He campaigns much like we did in Alaska – going voter to voter and door to door,” she explained. “He’s visited all 64 of Louisiana’s parishes in his Ford F-150. He even drove it to the event we had two weeks ago. He’s had 50 town halls and is the only candidate in the race to put forward positive, conservative solutions. He is the breath of fresh air Louisianans crave, and the polling data is reflecting that.”

But, Palin is not the only high-profile conservative going gaga for Maness. Most recently, Talk Radio Host Mark Levin announced his endorsement of Maness.

The Louisiana Senate seat is highly contested this time around as Democrats scramble to try to keep control in the US Senate. And with Cassidy as the likely GOP front-runner, Landrieu is sure to be held up in a run-off election.

However, a new in-depth analysis revealed that if Maness were to exit the Senate race, Cassidy would take the Senate win in the state’s jungle primary election, rather than going into a run-off election with Landrieu.

If Maness dropped out of the race, 57.6 percent of his supporters said they would support Cassidy, upping Cassidy’s chances in the jungle primary between 46.2 percent and 49.2 percent. The polling data states that without Maness in the race, the race “is nearly over.”
