Rob Maness

Rob Maness is a retired US Air Force colonel, and he's running for US Senate in Louisiana.  He says he's a Republican, and I guess we'll have to go with that, because he's never run for anything else.

His oppoinents are "Katrina" Mary Landrieu and establishment Republican Bill Cassidy.  Colonel Maness is seen as the underdog in this race.  Landrieu is going to get a sizeable percentage of the Donk vote, especially around her hometown of New Orleans.  Cassidy is going to get a big percentage fo the name recognition vote, and because his name is alphabetically early, his name will be first on theh ballot..  (Some folks may not think that's an advantage, but when you're dealing with low-information voters, being on top of the ballot is a slight advantage).

Maness has been struggling to get name recognition and he's finally starting to get a little traction.  He's released a campaign video, and I like it.  I like it a lot.

Our jungle primary election isn't until October, and there's lots of time between now and then, but at this stage, I'm inclined to pull the lever for Col Maness.

One hopes he can win. At least he has a track record of service...

G-d Bless him, and I hope he wins! If I lived down there, I'd sure vote for him. Anybody who can see the similarities between career politicians and alligators sure has his head on straight.
