What U.S. Senate Candidates Would, Would Not Do to Win Election

In an August forum featuring candidates vying for David Vitter’s open U.S. Senate seat, state Treasurer John Kennedy said, “I would rather drink weed killer than support Obamacare.” Kennedy has since doubled down on his sentiments by incorporating that folksy saying in a TV commercial.
