Landriew Loses Re-election Bid to Republican Challenger Cassidy

Losing incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu

Bill Cassidy, the new U.S. Senator from Louisiana

In a post-election runoff in Louisiana, Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu loses re-election to Republican challenger Bill Cassidy.  Saturday's election was a runoff due to the face that Cassidy didn't win enough votes to win it outright in November.  Landrieu was seeking a fourth term this year but lost in the end.  Cassidy's win means that the GOP will have a total of 54 seats in the Senate when Congress convenes in January.  Click on the link below to read the full story.
