Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON--U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., speaks on the front lawn of Angelle Songy's home, represented by her mother Judy Songy, right, next to other neighbors including Jane Vicknair, second right, Rebecca Roccaforte and Jennifer Remondet, left, in LaPlace, La. Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014. The house received over three feet of water during Hurricane Isaac seen in an aerial photo held by Landrieu and had to be gutted. According to the Landrieu campaign the event was to highlight Congressman Bill CassidyÕs votes to deny more than $100 million in funding for his own constituents who lost their homes and businesses in Hurricane Isaac while Senator Landrieu voted for the bill that President Barack Obama signed into law this congress.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has canceled some of its advertising for U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu leading up to the runoff election vs. Bill Cassidy on Dec. 6, according to a Politico report.
