According to news reports, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce plans to support Senator Mary Landrieu
(D-LA) in the Louisiana Senate race.
This is the same group that said it was going to spend $50 million against conservatives in primaries to elect more Republicans.
That was a huge lie.
The U.S. Chamber doesn't care about electing Republicans. It just wants more big government politicians who will force taxpayers to pay for their corporate bailouts and corporate welfare programs.
THE GOP RESPONSE? ... NOTHING
The Chamber's support for Mary Landrieu isn't what's so surprising. It's the lack of any meaningful response from the GOP establishment in Washington that is downright shocking!
You would expect the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) to be absolutely furious over this betrayal, but they're not.
The NRSC told the Wall Street Journal, "The Chamber is probably going to be with [Landrieu]. We've already baked all of this into the equation."
That's it? No rebuke? No blacklisting of vendors? No threats to "punch them in the nose?" No threats to "crush" them "everywhere?" Nothing?
When conservatives support principled Republicans in safe red states, the GOP establishment goes berserk attacking us. But when the U.S. Chamber supports a Democrat in a competitive race, they shrug it off as no big deal.
TWO LIBERAL CANDIDATES
If you look closer at the candidates, you will see why the GOP party bosses in DC aren't upset at the U.S. Chamber for backing Landrieu.
Truth is, there isn't much difference between Senator Landrieu and the NRSC's candidate, Congressman Bill Cassidy
Landrieu and Cassidy both support wasteful spending, corporate bailouts, more debt, and government-run health care.
In fact, they are so similar that Bill Cassidy even donated money to Mary Landrieu's campaign in 2002.
And now he wants voters to believe he's different than her?
Bill Cassidy also donated money to Kathleen Blanco (D-LA) who ran for Governor against Bobby Jindal (R-LA) in 2003. Cassidy served on Blanco's transition team and donated even more money to Blanco after
she ran race-baiting attacks against Governor Jindal!
This is the same garbage Senator Thad Cochran and the NRSC pushed in Mississippi this year against Chris McDaniel.
ONLY ONE CONSERVATIVE
The only veteran, anti-tax, smaller government, pro-family conservative in the race -- THE ONLY ONE -- is Col. Rob Maness
Rob Maness is a retired Air Force colonel, a decorated combat veteran, and a Bronze Star recipient who lives in Madisonville.
He understands the value of our freedoms and will fight to repeal Obamacare and stop the spending, bailouts, and debt that are bankrupting our country.
Col. Maness offers voters a compelling choice over Landrieu and Cassidy because he's not a Washington insider. He's a constitutional conservative who will make Louisiana proud.
Please make a contribution to Col. Rob Maness' campaign today.
As you know, SCF pays all processing fees so 100% of the money you donate for Col. Maness will go directly his campaign.
We can't let the cronies in Washington pick our leaders. It's up to us -- we the people -- to work together to elect conservatives who share our values.
Thank you for your continued support.
