The Senate Campaign Takes Money...Lots.

Posted: Updated:
Republican U.S. Senate candidate Rob Maness is on the airwaves in his bid to unseat Democrat Mary Landrieu.

Maness, a tea party favorite who has never run for office, released his first TV and radio commercials Thursday, a $50,000 ad buy. Both have the same message, of Maness being unafraid to take on career politicians, which he likens to facing down alligators in a Louisiana swamp. The TV ad features Maness riding an airboat and wrapping tape around an alligator's snout, as he talks about standing up to "big-spenders" and fighting to repeal the federal health care law.
    
Maness, a retired Air Force colonel whose fundraising has lagged behind GOP Congressman Bill Cassidy in the race, is one of three announced Republicans challenging Landrieu in the Nov. 4 election.
