John Neely Kennedy on Principles & Values

Democratic Senate Challenger (LA)


Ran for US Senate in 2004 as Democrat; & endorsed John Kerry

Kennedy never referred to McCain [at the latest debate], after two previous debates and several stump speeches in which he regularly talked of his support for the presidential nominee and his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin. Kennedy also didn't mention Landrieu's endorsement for Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama, an endorsement Kennedy has used to describe Landrieu as a "tax-and-spend liberal."

While Kennedy shifted his rhetoric, Landrieu largely continued hers--calling Kennedy "confused" because he switched parties last year after running for the U.S. Senate in 2004 as a liberal Democrat who endorsed John Kerry for president.

Kennedy's received significant fundraising and campaign help from the national GOP, but some of that assistance appeared to be drying up Wednesday with reports that the National Republican Senatorial Committee will pull its ads next week and focus attention on embattled incumbents in other states.
