Bill Cassidy: ‘I’ll Beat Landrieu In Run-Off Because Louisiana Wants Change’

Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) is in a hotly-contested Senate race with incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) which experts predict will not end today, but in December via a run-off election.

Yesterday, Cassidy went on Fox & Friends to say that he represents the change that Louisiana voters want to see, rather than opting for the same with Landrieu, who has been in office since 1996.

Cassidy said “”If we don’t win on [Nov. 4,] we’ll win Dec. 6. The majority of the people in Louisiana want change. I represent that change. It may take us an extra month. But if we don’t win [on] the fourth, we’ll win Dec. 6.”

Also, Cassidy said supporters of the long-shot candidate Col. Rob Maness, would support him in the run-off because they adamant opponents of Landrieu.

“His voters object to her, supporting the president 97 percent of the time; her vote to cut Medicare by $700 billion; and I can go down the list. So they object to her. They will support me. I represent them,” he said.

Cassidy said Landrieu has focused on “name-calling,” referring to comments she made in which she said the south has not always been kind to minority groups including women and blacks.
