Mary Landrieu Won’t Say If She’d Support Harry Reid If Elected as Senator

‘I will wait to see what the leadership looks like’

Twice Denied: Landrieu Refuses To Say If She Backs Harry Reid (The Daily Caller)

Embattled Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu refused to say if she would back Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid’s bid to remain the leader of her party.

Landrieu twice refused to answer the question in a Senate debate on WWL-TV in New Orleans.

Senator Landrieu was asked a simple question, “Will you vote for Harry Reid for leader if you’re reelected?”

Her answer was, “If Harry Reid were the only problem, not Mitch McConnell, and not some the President himself, presents some problems, Harry Reid presents some problems, Mitch McConnell presents some problems. If it were that easy, you know, we could talk about individual personalities, but the country is polarized. That is the truth – the country is polarized.”

She wasn’t done, blaming the Senate itself for polarization.

“It’s very difficult where you’ve got House seats where people represent all conservatives or all liberals, but in the Senate the 100 of us represent whole states. So we can try to show that gridlock can be broken, and I’ve tried to do that.”
