Landrieu On Estrada


Byron mentions Mary Landrieu’s 2002 campaign ad targeting Hispanics. Here’s the text (in translation), according to the email GOPers are sending around: “We need a Senator that serves our community better, so we have better teachers and can offer our children a better education. We need a senator that understands the needs of our community, economy, culture and society. Mary Landrieu has worked close to the Hispanic Community. Immediately following the destruction of Hurricane Mitch in Nicaragua and Honduras, Mary Landrieu was the first representative of the US to visit Honduras and involve herself with the relief effort for those affected by the hurricane and she obtained 11 million dollars in support of the affected families. Mary Landrieu ALSO SUPPORTED THE CANDIDACY OF THE HONDURAN MIGUEL ESTRADA FOR THE FEDERAL COURT OF APPEALS. Mary Landrieu has always been close to our community, she has grown, socialized and worked along our side. An announcement paid for by friends of Mary Landrieu.”
