Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu’s campaign has hit rock bottom with mere days remaining until what is being seen as her predictable defeat in the Louisiana run-off.
Earlier this week, the Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) announced that it would cancel all TV ad buys and a refused to send any more campaign checks to the Landrieu Campaign reports The Washington Post.
Landrieu had strong words for the committee, but replied to the news with a hint of inevitability:
“I am extremely disappointed. You know, they just walked away from this race.”
The DSCC joins virtually all other Democrat-aligned campaign committees in withdrawing support for Landrieu’s floundering campaign. This is all but an admission that she will be defeated in this Saturday’s run-off. The only remaining question, perhaps, is by how many points Republican Bill Cassidy will win.
Spokesman for the RSCC Brad Dayspring explained of the announcement that this run-off was over before it even started, “The political true bloods have moved on to 2016.” The most recent polls show a distinct advantage for Cassidy, some with as much as a 26 point difference in Cassidy’s favor.
