Cassidy Brings Out Big Conservatives At Rally

MONROE - Top conservatives made an appearance for Rep. Bill Cassidy at a campaign rally, Saturday. 

Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, former Senate candidate Col. Rob Maness, Lt. Governor Jay Darden and Phil Robertson spoke to a packed crowd at Ralph Abraham's hanger near Monroe Regional Airport. 

"We don't need a fundamental transformation of America, we need a fundamental restoration of all that's good and safe and free in America," said Palin. 

Cassidy, (R), who is currently in a runoff election against incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu, (D), took several shots at his opponent, including her voting record with the President, her 'D'-rating with the NRA, and her sudden support of the Keystone XL Pipeline Project. 

"We in this room will decide who the next Senator from Louisiana will be", said Cassidy. "We in this room will put an exclamation mark behind what the rest of the country has said and that is we reject Barack Obama's agenda". 

Some say Cassidy is an early front-runner to win the December 6th election.  If elected, it could have national implications.  Cassidy has been reportedly offered a spot on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee, which Landrieu currently chairs. 

It would also add to the Republican sweep in November's midterm election. 

Saturday's rally also showed that even far right-wing members of the Tea Party, (Maness and Palin), can come together to support a more moderate republican in Bill Cassidy.  

"Today is a sign that the conservatives in Louisiana are united," said Maness. 

The runoff election is set for Saturday, December 6th.
