Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D-LA) re-election race “is truly running out of air: She’s responsible for a mere 4 percent of all TV spots in the week-old Louisiana runoff. Republican challenger Bill Cassidy and his friends paid for 96 percent of the spots that have run so far,” Bloomberg reports.
One Democrat tells TPM: “She just can’t win. It’s just not mathematically possible. The way you win statewide in Louisiana is you get 95 percent of the black vote, a good African-American turnout, and 30 to 33 percent of the white vote. And she’s at 20! … Where does she gain? If you put her at 23 percent now, how does she gain 10 points with white voters in a month?”
