GOP Senate majority grows as Cassidy crushes Landrieu

Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-La.) easily ousted incumbent Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) in their Senate runoff on Saturday, capping off a dominating midterm election for Republicans.

The GOP’s victory in the final race of the 2014 cycle cements their nine-seat pickup in the upper chamber, giving them a 54 to 46 advantage over Democrats come January. Though Senate control wasn’t in the balance, Cassidy’s win is nonetheless an exclamation point on a midterm cycle that saw big gains for Republicans.

Polls in Louisiana closed at 9 p.m. EST, and the Associated Press called the race in favor of Cassidy at 9:30 pm with only 40 of the 4,018 precincts reporting and the Republican with a 64 percent to 36 percent lead.

Landrieu was upbeat in her concession speech later Saturday evening, taking the stage smiling and laughing with family members and supporters.

“I just called Congressman Cassidy to congratulate him after a long and tough campaign,” she said. “I told him that representing the people of this state is the greatest honor that anyone could ever have.”

    NOW! The republicans are now in the same spot as Obama, Obama did not deliver on his promises, will the republicans?
    Not if the current vote on amnesty shows their intentions.
    After Jan. 01, 2015 the republicans have their work cut out for them and they damn well had better not let politics get in the way of doing for America what is right. And, the first thing must be to remove Obama care, then build the fence and then start the FN deportations! (or 2016 could be a reverse action by the voters).

      Six years as a senator is all they need…… how long do you have to work for your pension, if you get one?

    There are 11 Million more people without Health Insurance under OBAMACARE.Originally there were only 30 million people………. and now there are 41 million. Why? Its because families are going broke to pay the monthly, and out of pocket costs. Take the money from Obama’s 12 million dollar Saving Account. Sue the Feds for the high tax……….. remove Obamacare

  • Rwoodworth says:

    She was very deceiving to her people, just like Obama has been for over 6 years. Mary Landrieu suffered from a lot of dishonesty, beginning with breaking the law that the home she was supposed to have, was only listed as her parents. She lied on the small and large important items of being an American Senator. She was a career politician like Conyers, Levin, Stabenow, Frank, Obama, Boxer, Pelosi , Reid, and many more. Lets relieve the rest of their jobs in 2016, and let more and different Americans have their chance at re-designing America back to the shadow of our GREAT Constitution. Did you read this CRIMINAL Obama?

      One more Marxist Pig enabler bites the dust! I hate to think how many more we have to go. :>(

    YAAAAAAAAAA! She needed to go down–good thing the ppl of Louisiana saw through her BS! If Obozo would have announced his unlawful AMNESTY plan and if the increases in Obozocare increases had been announced on Nov 1st like they were supposed to be then the GOP win would have been even larger!
