Landrieu Hit as ‘the Senator Representing the District of Columbia’ in New Ad

by Andrew Johnson

American Crossroads has released a new hard-hitting ad questioning whether Louisana senator Mary Landrieu lives in the state, following reports that her claimed address is her parents’ New Orleans home.

The conservative political-action committee suggests Landrieu, a vulnerable Democrat this fall, is a better representative of Capitol Hill and Washington, D.C., than her own state. At one point, the ad shows Washington mayor Vincent Gray referring to Landrieu as “the senator representing the District of Columbia until we become the 51st state of the United States.” Lobbyists and others are featured throughout the ad praising Landrieu for her efforts to fund various D.C. initiatives and projects.
