With her senatorial tenure hanging in the balance, Mary Landrieu is doing whatever she can in an attempt to win another term in the upper chamber in Congress.
If you ask MSNBC, she might as well already be toast.
While touting her support for a vote on the Keystone XL pipeline, MSNBC political correspondent Kasie Hunt asked the Louisiana senator if she is “a lost cause,” adding that none of the Democratic leaders are standing by her in support of a vote.

“Senator Landrieu, national democrats pulled ads from your campaign. Your leaders are not standing with you today. Are you a lost cause?” asked Hunt.
“No, I don’t believe that I am,” responded Landrieu. “And of course I’ve stood against my leadership when I’ve had to, and this is one of the times. My leadership, at least the two or three that are elected, have not been strong keystone supporters. So this is just another example of many that I can give you where I had to stand up to my caucus and have done it.”
