Bill Cassidy, R-La., foreground, talking to reporters after their debate at Centenary College in Shreveport, La. Mary Landrieu is the last Democrat to hold statewide office in Louisiana, a state that Mitt Romney won easily in 2012 and where President Barack Obama remains highly unpopular. But Landrieu hasn’t yet succumbed to her main challenger, Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy, thanks in part to a large base of support among black voters in New Orleans and her strong ties to the state’s dominant oil and gas industry.  (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)
