Republican Party of Louisiana Executive Director Jason Doré issued the following statement regarding today’s Louisiana 19th Judicial District hearing about Senator Mary Landrieu’s residency:
“The fact that Mary Landrieu’s lawyers argued their case on a timing technicality and not whether Landrieu is actually a Louisiana resident says a lot about where the Senator actually lives. Louisiana deserves a Senator who lives in our state and is committed to our state, like Bill Cassidy, not someone like Mary Landrieu for whom calling Louisiana home is nothing more than a convenient excuse to continue living the high life as a Washington, D.C. insider. It’s laughable that Senator Landrieu thinks voters will believe that she can afford a $2.5 million house in Washington, D.C. but lives with her parents and doesn’t own a home herself in Louisiana.
“Today’s ruling does nothing to change the fact that Mary Landrieu is more committed to Barack Obama and Washington, D.C. than Louisiana, and we will continue to highlight that fact throughout this fall.”
