Col. Rob Maness Surges in Louisiana Senate Race
We wanted to share the results of a poll we conducted last week in the Louisiana Senate race. It's good news for conservatives.
The survey shows that Col. Rob Maness
(R-LA) has climbed into double digits in this three-person race and is now surging. Here are the results:
Mary Landrieu (D-LA) — 43%
Bill Cassidy (R-LA) — 32%
Rob Maness (R-LA) — 16%
Other — 1%
Undecided — 8%
This survey of 600 likely voters was conducted August 16-18 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.0%
As you may know, Col. Maness started this race with no name awareness, no money, and no organization. But thanks to his hard work, your financial support, and a winning message, that has begun to change.HOW WE WIN IN LOUISIANA
Louisiana has a "jungle primary" where all of the candidates are on the ballot in November. Since this is a three-person race and 50% is needed to win, there will be a run-off election in December between the top two finishers.
Our goal is to help Col. Maness get to the mid to high 30's before November 4 so he makes the run-off and can challenge Landrieu in a head-to-head race.
He was at 3% in March, he was at 8% in June, and now he's at 16%. If we keep pushing, we can help him double his support again and make the run-off.TWO LIBERALS — ONE CONSERVATIVE
Col. Maness is surging because the establishment Republican in the race, Congressman Bill Cassidy, is an uninspiring candidate who offers voters no real choice over Democrat Senator Mary Landrieu.
Cassidy is essentially the same candidate as Landrieu except with an "R" next to his name. He has supported wasteful spending, higher taxes, and more debt. He even donated money to Mary Landrieu!
Bill Cassidy's weakness as a candidate can be seen in the hypothetical head-to-head contests with Mary Landrieu that we tested in our poll.
Cassidy trails Landrieu by 6 points despite having spent over $3 million, having the full support of the DC establishment, and having high name awareness.
Mary Landrieu (D-LA) — 49%
Bill Cassidy (R-LA) — 43%
Undecided — 8%
However, Col. Maness — the grassroots candidate — trails Landrieu by only 4 points
despite not being as well known in the state.
Mary Landrieu (D-LA) — 48%Not only is Col. Rob Maness surging in the polls, he also polls better than Bill Cassidy in a head-to-head contest with Mary Landrieu.
Rob Maness (R-LA) — 44%
Undecided — 8%
If conservatives continue to help Col. Maness, he will finish first or second in the November primary and then defeat Mary Landrieu in the December run-off.If you haven't supported Col. Rob Maness financially or if you can do so again, we strongly encourage you to contribute to his campaign today.
Col. Rob Maness is the underdog, but he's also the best candidate in the race. He's the only candidate who will support the Constitution and fight to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country.
We will keep you updated as this race develops.
Thank you for being part of the SCF team! We value your support and appreciate everything you do to help build a conservative Senate.
