Which just goes to show the horrible disservice to the GOP this crop of lame contenders is doing by freezing the field until they make a decision, a desicion that can only be good for the GOP if they decide not to run.

Landry seems to be getting a bit creative. He may run for Congress in Cassidy's open CD6.

Though this seems kinda crazy and Landry would be an ostensible underdog to a Baton Rouge Republican, it could feasibly work, especially given the jungle primary. There is actually a noticeable chunk of LA-06 that Landry represented in the 112 Congress.


This map, from the LA-03 runoff thread I made a while back, looks at how Landry's old CD3 was carved up:



The teal portions are now in CD6.

NC Yankee will like this: McHenry is running for the House again.

This means the race for CD10 will be McHenry vs. Bellamy.

We still have four more lame horses to dispense with though, if the article is any guide.

Miles, do you think that the republicans will be united behind Bill Cassidy? I don't see another republicans who could run for senate if Jeff Landry rules out.

Sadly, yes. Any others would be non-factors.

And is Cassidy a strong candidate or an Akin-style?

Eh, he's who the state Republicans wanted. I don't foresee him having any Akin-esque debacles.

Overall, red state Democrats kicked ass this quarter with fundraising. Just so we have all five of them in one list:

Raised in Q1/CoH (in millions)

Hagan: 1.6/2.7
Landrieu: 1.2/3.5
Baucus: 1.5/4.8
Begich: .94/1.5
Pryor: 1.9/3.4

Downballot in NC-07, we have some relatively low numbers at this point. McIntyre is sitting on $182K after pulling in $118K in Q1. Rouzer, who launched his rebid less than a month ago, has $ 9K CoH.

Also, FWIW, Virginia Foxx has $1.5 million on hand and raised almost $100K. 'Thats quite a bit for having such a safe seat. Could she be planning for other things? Cheesy

Good news! Her support for gay mariage doesn't weaken her. What's more, her reelection won't be compromised because of gun control.

A tad worse than last time, IIRC, but still good.

Ellmers' fundraising wasn't horrible this quarter, right at $100K, but it still confirms my hunch that she won't run.

The club for growth is targeting her. So it would be risky for her to run for the US senate.

So that leaves the even lousier state bench. Hagan's getting a second term even though on paper it should be a tossup.

Tillis has gone from 2% to 7% in the R primary! Those commercials he cut might actually be having an impact.

Both ladies voted Yea on Manchin-Toomey. Obviously, it was riskier for Landrieu; this was her statement:

In addition to Manchin-Toomey, a bill to limit the capacity of clips was also up yesterday and actually failed 54/46. Both of Louisiana's Senators voted against it. Strategically, this should give Landrieu at least some cover after she went out on a limb to support Manchin-Toomey.

The four other red state Democrats voted Nay as well.
