Louisiana Treasurer Switches To GOP May Potentially Run For Senate

By Eric Kleefeld - August 27, 2007, 1:25PM

In a move that could throw a shadow over growing Dem optimism about making gains in the Senate in 2008, Louisiana Treasurer John N. Kennedy announced today that he is switching from the Democrats over to the Republican Party a change widely seen as being a preliminary move towards challenging Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu.
