The Washington Free Beacon’s Ellison Barber appeared on Fox Business Network to discuss Sen. Mary Landrieu (D., La.) and the fallout from her recent inflammatory remarks.
Barber explained to host Stuart Varney that Landrieu’s comments may have been meant to spark her base, but ultimately "this is something that will be a PR disaster for her."

Barber said that it was a poor political move to single out a particular demographic that tends to vote in high numbers.
"She is isolating a lot of people who were maybe going to come out and vote for her or – who were sort of on the fence and not entirely sure," Barber said.
She went on to discuss the likelihood of the Republican Party gaining a majority in the Senate despite some very close races: "Maybe Republicans should be doing better right now than they are, but they still are doing very well across the board."
