Look, LA is not AR or TN. Democrats can still win there. Even Landrieu got 44% despite her terrible campaign.

Low excitement about the election and the runoff system probably helps republicans.

If anything, that helps the Democratic candidate. Southern Blacks turn out at a higher rate than AAs in other parts of the country, whether it's a runoff election or not.
I don't really see what was so bad about Landrieu's campaign. What else could she have done?

Not playing the race card might have helped. Oh, and maybe not calling your constituents racist and sexist might have helped as well. And not hiding from Obama too. I could go on and on. Given that campaign, she shouldn't have gotten 40%, much less 44%. The 2014 (and 2012) results were a warning sign for the LA GOP.

I'll give you that this guy is probably why his margin was a tad underwhelming, that and the GOP majority was already won.
