Senator Mary Landrieu said Thursday she thinks one of the reasons she is losing her campaign for re-election is that the state that voted her into office is sexist. Landrieu also said that President Obama is unpopular in her state because of his race.
Speaking with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Landrieu said, “I’ll be very, very honest with you. The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans.”
Pointing to herself Landrieu continued, “It’s not always been a good place for women to present ourselves. It’s more of a conservative place.”
Landrieu oddly didn’t mention that her low approval might stem from the fact she was the deciding vote for Obamacare. The senator also didn’t note in the interview that President Obama’s approval ratings are dismal in northern states as well as southern.
