Mary Landrieu is having a rough week. First, those racist, sexist voters in Louisiana, who voted her into office at least twice before, refused to supporter in a large enough quantity to help her avoid a runoff. And now, in the face of major Republican pickups across the coutnry, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has decided that she’s just not worth the time it takes to write out the check to fund her campaign.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is canceling at least some of its advertising reservations for Sen. Mary Landrieu ahead of the December runoff in Louisiana.
The committee canceled buys planned from Monday through December 6 in the Lafayette, Baton Rouge and New Orleans markets, three sources tracking the air war told POLITICO.
Apparently, Mary’s not as important now because control of the Senate isn’t up for grabs. If she wins, it’s nice for the Democrats, but it’s not going to help get the job done. If she loses, she will have predicted her own demise, so she can comfortably snag a seat on a primetime cable news program.
For their part, the DSCC says the pullout shouldn’t affect Landrieu’s chances, since she’s so good at winning runoffs anyway. Others aren’t so convinced. Landrieu won’t get the support of environmental groups (she’s from Louisiana, for heaven’s sake) and abortion rights groups have bigger losers to put money behind (not to mention an exhausted war chest from supporting so many lackluster candidates the last time around).
