The GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in Louisiana against incumbent Dem Mary Landrieu has the very Democratic name of John Kennedy. He hasn’t always campaigned as a conservative, but he is quite proudly campaigning as a conservative now. The truth is that in his longtime elective job as state Treasurer — Landrieu’s former job — he has indeed done a superb job of managing the state’s finances, and in a prudent, fiscally conservative manner. His new campaign commercial highlighted by K-Lo at the Corner is quite well done, and all the more effective for being absolutely accurate. I know John slightly: He and I were classmates in 1990-1991 in becoming Fellows of the Loyola (New Orleans) Institute of Politics. He’s a very friendly, engaging guy, and very, very bright. It’s a race that bears watching.
