2nd Republican Enters Race For Landrieu’s Seat

Another Republican contender has announced that he is seeking the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Mary Landrieu.

Rob Maness, a Retired U.S. Air Force Colonel, has thrown his hat in the ring against Landrieu, who is seeking re-election, and the already announced Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-Baton Rouge).

Maness is a Constitutional Conservative and was an Operations Officer for the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon during 9/11. For his military service, he was awarded the Bronze Star and Air Medal.

Maness is stressing several issues which he feels differentiate himself from Cassidy and Landrieu including:

-          Protecting and Defending Individual Liberty and Constitutional Rights

-          Protecting 2nd Amendment Rights

-          Immigration Reform and Border Security

-          Energy Independence

-          Education Reform and eliminating Common Core standards

-          Repealing the Obama/Landrieu Government Healthcare Takeover

Maness and his wife Candy are residents of Madisonville.
