Sen. Landrieu’s First Runoff Ad Portrays GOP Opponent as ‘Incoherent’

Even though the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee cut its ad buys for the Louisiana runoff Senate race, Sen. Mary Landrieu launched her first ad since Tuesday’s general election in which no candidate received more than 50 percent of the vote — and it is not a flattering portrayal of her Republican opponent Rep. Bill Cassidy.

In the ad, the narrator describes a “nearly incoherent” speech that Cassidy gave to the Republican Leadership Conference back in May. Featured throughout the ad were clips of Cassidy seemingly stumping over his words during the speech.

“But his record is crystal clear,” the narrator continued, saying he voted for Social Security cuts in favor of a tax cut for the wealthy.

Landrieu will not have an easy time trying to win the December runoff. While her 42 percent of the vote narrowly edged Cassidy’s 41 percent in the general election, the Tea Party candidate received 14 percent of the vote — all or most of which will go to Cassidy in the runoff.

Watch the ad below, via Landrieu’s YouTube channel:
