Cassidy: 'Landrieu Represents Obama, I Represent People of Louisiana'
Bill Cassidy, candidate for U.S. Senate in Louisiana, was on “Hannity” tonight, where he discussed the Dec. 6 runoff election against incumbent Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu.
Cassidy sounded confident that he will win the Senate seat in next month’s runoff.
“Almost 60 percent of people in Louisiana voted for change,” Cassidy said. “Sen. Landrieu got 42 or 43 percent, everyone else voted against her. Everyone else wants someone different to be our United States senator. I am that change, I am the one who will win on December the 6th.”
Sean Hannity asked Cassidy about Landrieu’s comments that the south hasn’t always been friendly to African Americans and women.
“If Sen. Landrieu actually lived here, she would know those statements are not true,” he said, adding that it’s ironic that she has charged the south with sexism when she has held political office since she was 23 years old.
He told Hannity, “She’s out of sync with the people of Louisiana. She represents Barack Obama, I represent the people of Louisiana.”
Cassidy also blasted ObamaCare as a wet blanket, saying that it doesn’t need to be tweaked; it must be uprooted and replaced.
