John Neely Kennedy on Energy & Oil
Democratic Senate Challenger (LA)
Landrieu's ad goes beyond any nuanced criticism from Kennedy, with an announcer stating, "He opposes her plan to open up 120 million acres for drilling. Under Kennedy, no new oil, higher gas prices, lost Louisiana jobs."
A Landrieu spokesman echoed his boss's characterization of Kennedy, saying the Republican speaks in generalities and has not offered any specific energy policy, drilling or otherwise.
Drilling has been a major issue in the campaign since Kennedy started earlier this summer highlighting a May committee vote in which Landrieu honored a request of Sen. Ken Salazar, D-Colorado, to vote against allowing exploration in oil shale in Colorado.
