Sen. Mary Landrieu says race hurts Obama in Louisiana

WASHINGTON — Embattled Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress, has struggled throughout her re-election campaign this fall to cope with the low approval ratings of President Barack Obama, whose signature energy and health care policies are widely disliked in the state.

She gave her GOP opponents some political red meat this week when she expounded on why Obama is so unpopular with her constituents. Landrieu said the president’s race is a factor.

“I’ll be very, very honest with you,” she said in an interview with NBC News that aired Thursday. “The South has not always been the friendliest place for African-Americans. It’s been a difficult time for the president to present himself in a very positive light as a leader.”
