The Candidates

Louisiana Senate Election 2014 - Mary Landrieu vs. Bill Cassidy

Democrat
Incumbent
'No-nominee'
Election
Bill Cassidy
Republican
 
Incumbent: Democrat Mary Landieu, first elected to the Senate in 1996, is seeking a fourth term in 2014.  In Louisiana, there are no primaries and thus no party nominees.  Instead, all qualifying candidates are on the general election ballot.  If no candidate gets 50% plus one in November, then the top two vote-getters advance to a runoff election in December.
Republicans
  • Bill Cassidy - U.S. Representative from Louisiana
  • Thomas Clements
  • Paul Hollis - Louisiana State Representative
  • Rob Maness
Democrat
  • Mary Landrieu - Incumbent
  • Don Reaux
Others
  • Brannon McMorris (Libertarian)
