Retreat, Retreat! (Louisiana Edition)

It ain't safe to be a Republican

The National Republican Senatorial Committee has decided to pull its television advertising out of Louisiana, a decision that drastically reduces the party's chances at its lone takeover opportunity in this election cycle.

The ads, according to buy information obtained by The Fix, will end next Tuesday -- two weeks before the Nov. 4 election between Sen. Mary Landrieu (D) and state Treasurer John Kennedy (R).

Even worse, the Republicans are now putting money into Kentucky and Georgia to defend incumbent Republicans.
