Sen. Mary Landrieu's new ad distances herself from President Obama

Posted By on Tue, Apr 15, 2014 at 12:54 PM


A new ad released today from Sen. Mary Landrieu tries to put some distance between Landrieu— in a tough re-election fight in Republican-leaning, Obama-hating Lousiana — and the president, a gambit she's done before. 

The ad focuses on Landrieu's role protecting oil and gas interests in Louisiana and hypes her Senate clout chairing the Energy committee as a means to look out for the state. It doesn't mention Obama by name, but opens with Landrieu angrily declaring, "The administration's policies are simply wrong when it comes to oil and gas production in this nation."  

Worth noting because when it comes to surviving red-state politics, where Landrieu goes, Sen. Mark Pryor will often follow.
