The Louisiana situation recently caught the attention of White House senior adviser Karl Rove, who was mulling whether or not it would be worth it to have current Louisiana Gov. Mike Foster throw his hat in the ring to take on Landrieu. All signs now are that it won’t be. “It’s not as easy a decision as you might think,” a Republican National Committee staffer had said last week. “It’s kind of late in the game to mount a campaign, we’d have to be pretty sure that Foster wasn’t burning a bridge that might be open to him further down the road.”
There is little or no chance that Foster would take on the other Bayou senator, John Breaux, who remains popular in state and with this White House. Louisiana wasn’t thought to be a serious state in play six months ago, but as Republicans have watched Senate races tighten up in Texas and Tennessee (once thought safe for Republican re-election), and uncertainty in potential swing states like Minnesota and South Dakota, they know Landrieu’s seat could loom large in the battle for Republican control of the Senate.p> RAISING THE BARR br> Rep.
