In a new video uncovered by the Black Conservative Fund, Louisiana Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu’s Washington chief-of-staff Don Cravins Jr. tells a crowd of supporters that if reelected in the December run-off election, Landrieu would vote for President Barack Obama’s agenda 97% of the time.

“He can’t finish his agenda, because he doesn’t have people like Mary Landrieu with him…” Cravins says. “So I’m asking you to go out and vote tomorrow for Senator Landrieu.”
“She’s been in office for eighteen years, and in the Senate, that’s what you need to get things done,” he continues, “And she will go on to vote with Barack Obama 97 percent of the time!”
The fact that Landrieu has voted for Obama’s agenda 97 percent of the time is a contentious issue in a state where the president currently is polling at a 58 percent disapproval rating. Republican challenger Bill Cassidy has brought up her voting preference throughout his campaign, and Americans For Prosperity even made it the centerpiece of an ad.
