(CNN) - CNN projects that two-term Democratic incumbent Mary Landrieu will defeat Republican challenger John Kennedy for the Senate race in Louisiana.
CNN projections are based on actual results and exit poll data from key areas.
There was no doubt she would. I just want to know how can my state elect Mary Landrieu back in her senate seat but not President Obama for president.
Than you Lord!!!
Well this is proof there is still some good in Louisiana when they don't throw out the strongest advocate and hardest working official the state has.
Louisiana has the right idea-a mix of Democratic and Republican leadership creates greater balance, prevents extreme measures on either side, and results in a better likelihood of meaningful legislation coming out of Congress.
I voted for Sen. John McCain, feeling he was most qualified to run this country and uphold good morals but I voted for Mary Landrieu here in Baton Rouge because of her knowledge and strong identity as compared to John Kennedy.
Louisana got the Presidency wrong but thank goodness they got this right. Congrats to Mary Landrieu.
Mary Landrieu has the right type of character, strength and determination that Louisiana needs right now. Her morals and family values are as good as anyone else and let there be no mistake about that! I have enjoyed working on her campaign and remain committed to ensuring she serves this state and our people for as long as God sees fit for her to. I pray that with President-Elect Obama, a new house and senate, bipartisanship and progress will reign over our lives and be the guiding lights that lead us into the future where the challenges we face will surely try our will! Sen. Landrieu....congratulations!
The Dems won.
